After announcing Apple One on September 15, 2020, Apple is finally offering a bundled package for their iCloud and Apple services. Instead of requiring users to purchase these software subscriptions separately, Apple One includes most services for a far lower monthly price. Several plans are offered for the diverse types of consumers:
- Individual Plan ($14.95/month): Apple Music, Apple TV+, 50GB iCloud storage, and Apple Arcade
- Family Plan ($19.95/month): Apple Music Family subscription, Apple TV+, 200GB shared iCloud storage, and Apple Arcade
- Premier Plan ($29.95/month): Apple Music, Apple TV+, 2TB iCloud storage, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and Apple Fitness+.

Apple launched Apple TV+ last November and currently has produced shows exclusive to the platform such as the drama series Defending Jacob and the award-winning comedy series Dickinson. Apple TV+ is $4.99/month.
iCloud storage can be purchased for users to save phone backups, photos, videos, documents, notes, contacts, and more to the Apple cloud storage platform. 50GB can be purchased for $0.99/month, 200GB for $2.99/month, and 2TB for $9.99/month.
