The price starts at USD 14.95 per month (around PHP 720) for the Individual plan which includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage.

If you opt to choose the Family plan, it goes with 200GB iCloud storage and can be shared among up to six (6) family members for USD 19.95 per month (around PHP 960).

Apple also introduced the Premier plan which includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage for USD 29.95 per month (around PHP 1.5K). Like the Family plan, it can be shared among up to six (6) family members.

Apple claimed that the Individual plan offers savings of over USD 6 per month, while the Family plan has up to USD 8 savings per month, and the Premier plan goes with over USD 25 savings per month.

Apple said that Apple One comes with a 30-day FREE trial period. Customers will only receive one invoice per month and they can easily change or cancel their Apple One plan anytime. Those with Family and Premier plans, up to six (6) family members can access all included services with their own personal accounts and preference.

The service will be available in the fall in over 100 countries. The Premier plan will be available in Australia, Canada, the US, and the UK where Apple News+ and Apple Fitness+ is available later this year.

Spotify is not happy

Meanwhile, Spotify said that once again Apple is using its dominant position and unfair practices to disadvantage competitors.

Once again, Apple is using its dominant position and unfair practices to disadvantage competitors and deprive consumers by favoring its own services. We call on competition authorities to act urgently to restrict Apple's anti-competitive behavior, which if left unchecked, will cause irreparable harm to the developer community and threaten our collective freedoms to listen, learn, create, and connect.

Apple responded by saying that its customers will still be able to discover and enjoy alternatives.

Customers can discover and enjoy alternatives to every one of Apple's services. We're introducing Apple One because it is a great value for customers and a simple way to access the full range of Apple's subscription services. We'll be recommending the Apple One plan that saves you the most money based on the subscriptions you already have. It’s perfect for anyone who loves any of our services and wants to get more for less, and it’s especially great for families. Also select services included in Apple One are available to enjoy on non-Apple devices, and you can cancel anytime.
