Apple is diving deeper into its services rabbit hole with Apple one, a new set of subscription bundles that bunch up a variety of Apple services under one convenient monthly payment.
Here's what you need to know.
If you miss the apple event it was mostly focused on the Apple Watch and the iPad.
But they also rolled out plans for Apple One, a set of bundled subscription plans with three different tiers.
Here's the breakdown.
The individual plan includes 50 gigs of iCloud storage, Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple arcade for $15 a month, unbundled the standard monthly cost for those services to be about.
$21 so you're saving about six bucks if you use all of those services.
The storage is a little low for my tastes, but maybe you aren't shooting 4k video all the time, and you keep all of your files on a hard drive instead of in the cloud.
Then there's the family plan, you get 200 gigs of storage, Apple Music, Apple TV plus and Apple arcade for 20 bucks a month.
Up to five people can share that subscription though.
So if you're already paying for an Apple Music family plan, which is $15 a month, this is a pretty good deal, especially if you're really taking advantage of TV plus and arcade.
At the top tier Apple is offering the premier plan.
This is a seemingly pricey $30 a month but it includes the affer mentioned music, TV plus and arcade access.
It bumps iCloud storage up to two terabytes and tax on news plus and the new fitness plus service.
Again for five accounts to share.
Unbundled, and for a single user, those would add up to $50 a month.
Lastly, if you're an Android user, what are you doing here?
Did you get lost wandering around?
So what's the recommendation?
Well, if you're all in on Apple, you love your Apple Watch.
You get your Apple news on your iPhone and you store your files on iCloud and use an iPad and your whole family is similar.
Well, obviously that premiere Apple one subscription is a pretty compelling deal.
But if you're a casual tech user with a cracked screen on a phone that's four years old, who barely cares what iPhone you're using, There are a lot of you out there, I see you.
Maybe the individual plan is your jam.
If you're like super into either arcade or TV plus and you already subscribe to Apple Music Apple one is a huge move to convince its customers to buy deeper into its services which it's been focusing on and adding to for a while now.
That's not necessarily something its competitors love to see though.
Epic the maker of fortnight recently sued Apple over alleged antitrust practices.
And Spotify CEO said he hopes growing anti trust concerns from regulators in both the US and EU will nudge the company to open up its platforms more to third party competitors.
Regardless of regulation though Apple is committed to convincing customers IT services are the best option for them.
And they're aiming high with the goal of crossing the $50 billion mark and services revenue.
