When the same company has many subscriptions, all users are under the same devices category. You can give better bundle options that reduce the confusion and better management of bills. After a lot of rumors and some leaks, Apple officially launched Apple One subscription. We can guess this one package can cover most of the necessary individual subscription plans by the name. The basic plan covers necessary platforms, and the Premiere plan covers additional platforms. Google also tries to merge some platforms under Google One. But currently, the idea only sticks with cloud storage.
Apple rolled out the service bundle Apple One for its users that combine five Apple services like Apple Arcade, Apple Music, Apple News Plus, Apple TV Plus, new added Apple Fitness Plus, and the iCloud storage up to 2 TB at a low bundle price.

According to Apple, this bundle plan is live from this Friday, October 30. The Apple Fitness Plus service will be launched later this year. The individual and family plans will be available in more than 100 countries. In contrast, the premium plan will only be available in the USA, UK, Australia, and Canada as Apple News Plus is currently available in these countries.
Even the Individual plan looks worthy to compare with the separate subscription packages. Apple One includes all those services that you really need for current affairs or your entertainment. Also, the prices are very charming if you plan for a long-term affiliation with Apple. But the Apple Arcade doesn’t provide better games like Google Stadia. When you are a frequent Apple Music user instead of Spotify, You prefer Apple Cloud Storage and didn’t use Google Drive; You didn’t use any other TV service, then the Apple One is the best deal for you. Or Else, based on your needs, you can opt-in for individual subscriptions. Do tell us your views about this new bundle plan in the comment below.
