Apple today announced its Apple One subscription package, which combines the merchandise of many of its services. It has individual and family levels in over 100 countries that have subscriptions to Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade and 50 or 200 GB of iCloud storage depending on your plan.
The individual plan is $ 14.95 per month and the family plan is $ 19.95 per month in the US. Apple rated the bundle so that you’ll at least want to try it out, even if you don’t use all of the services available.
In the US, combining three services at 50GB costs $ 20.96 per month. So the whole bundle can save you a few dollars.
In India, the custom plan costs £ 1

The Apple One family plan costs £ 365 ($ 4.96) per month in India. So it makes sense for us to switch to the family plan even if we don’t watch Apple TV + a lot.
The only time this subscription package doesn’t make sense to someone is when they’re not using Apple Music. Right now, Apple TV + doesn’t offer as much value as other streaming services. So you’d better pay for arcade and iCloud storage separately.
However, Apple is offering a 30-day free trial of any service that you don’t belong to to see if you want to continue with the package or pay for those services separately.
If you are in the Apple ecosystem, it makes sense to at least try out Apple One. If you share some of these services with your family, the offer may be too tempting to refuse.
