This week, Apple has announced a new subscription plan called Apple One, which collects all of the technology company's subscriptions in one place.

The individual plan groups Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+ and the iCloud together.

From autumn 2020, the services can be accessed across devices, including the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and Mac.

“Apple One makes enjoying Apple subscription services easier than ever, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud, and more,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “With Apple One, you can access the best of Apple entertainment across all your favourite devices with one simple subscription.”

Apple announced in a statement: "Starting this fall, customers with Apple subscriptions will be recommended the right Apple One plan for them so they can sign up with a tap from any Apple device and get even more for less."

How much does Apple One cost?

In the UAE, there will be two Apple One packages for customers to choose between. The Individual package costs Dh39.95 per month and includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade and 50GB of iCloud.

The Family package can be shared between up to six family members and includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade and 200GB of iCloud storage for Dh52.95 per month.

There will be a 30-day free trial for any services that customers do not already have.

Globally, there will also be a Premier plan, which includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+ and 2TB of iCloud storage for $29.95 (Dh110) per month. It can also be shared among up to six family members.

Based on standard monthly pricing for the services, signing up to the Individual plan offers UAE customers a saving of Dh23 per month, and the Family plan offers a savings of over Dh28 per month, which is Dh276 and Dh336 per year, respectively.
