There are three types of bundles: Individual, Family, and Premier. The single plan offers subscribers Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and iCloud storage (50GB) for $ 14.95 per month.

How Bloomberg A family using a plan that combines Apple Music ($ 9.99 per month), Apple TV Plus ($ 4.99 per month), and Apple Arcade ($ 4.99 per month) would likely purchase a plan which contains additional iCloud storage.

Apple has reportedly been working on a bundle for years, and it’s easy to see why. The company’s services space is growing, and CEO Tim Cook has identified it as an area Apple plans to invest in.

With everything on users’ iPhones or iPads, those devices are likely only to get updated and stay in the ecosystem rather than switching to an Android device, for example.
At least that’s what Apple hopes. Hey it worked on amazon.
