Bloomberg: Apple services bundle to launch in October alongside iPhone 12, called 'Apple One' - 9to5Mac
Apple is readying to launch a range of services bundles in October, with the working brand name ‘Apple One’, according to a report from Bloomberg. The bundle would offer a selection of Apple’s services at a discount, with a variety of packages and prices. Bloomberg suggests that Apple is also...
So, there's finally more information leaking out about Apple wanting to combine all its services into one subscription package.
Apple TV+ Apple News and Apple Arcade
I kind of wonder what price they could offer that would entice someone to subscribe to all three.
I have no interest in Arcade however I could see myself trying it and perhaps liking it as a way of passing time.
I have tried Apple News and while it has a great selection of magazines, I get more information from the Internet in a more timely manner. I canceled my subscription after 6 months. I pay a separate yearly subscription for MAC LIFE magazine.
Apple TV+ was initially really great, but there is less programming I am interested in and with COVID-19 there are less original shows to watch. I had to planned to cancel it once the free year was up. I might pay for it for a single month just to binge-watch a new show.
All these services, separately, would cost $19.97 per month.
My guess is that Apple could get all three down to $14.99 per month.
I don't think I would move at that price.
If they got it down to $9.99 per month for all three they would definitely have me as a subscriber. I do realize, however, that is a long-shot but not out-of-bounds for what Apple could offer.
