Apple is reportedly performing on a bundle subscription decide to offer to its users which could substantially bring the value down.
According to a Bloomberg report, the bundle plan might be a mixture of multiple Apple services like Apple Arcade, Apple TV+ and even the iCloud storage bundled into one plan and made available at a reduced price.
The plan is reportedly being called Apple One and will be unrolled within the coming weeks along side the launch of the new iPhones.
This strategy within the pipeline could also be to draw in users who haven’t tried other Apple services and have just cursed with one or two to save lots of abreast of the additional cost. By combining multiple services Apple is addressing that issue.
With most packages, you’ll expect savings of $2(Rs 150 approx) to $5(Rs 375 approx).
The services business for Apple may be a huge industry with turnover amounting to the maximum amount as $50 billion during a year alongside sales from hardware that include the iPhone, MacBook, iPad and other Apple devices.
Since Apple offers a spread of products, we’d see it offering its Apple One plan in multiple tier options. The more premium Apple One plan may get you more iCloud storage and access to exclusive Apple TV+ content.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says there might be a minimum of five tiers with the foremost affordable being a combo of Apple Music and Apple TV+.
The report also says that the plans would be introduced in such how that even a family sharing devices in an Apple ecosystem would be ready to cash in of the Apple One plans.
Amazon features a similar offering for its users called Amazon Prime where it bundles its video and music streaming service with express delivery. The Apple One subscription acts as an immediate competitor to Amazon Prime.
There are still some constraints that Apple will need to find an answer for. just like the incontrovertible fact that not all of its services are available globally — as an example , Apple News+ isn’t available in India.
It is also not clear whether Apple will offer the Apple One plans to people that are using Apple services on Android devices.
Considering that Apple has been aggressive with its Apple Music and Apple TV+ subscription plans in India — Rs 99 and Rs 149 per month respectively — we will expect an equivalent logic of pricing for the upcoming Apple One subscriptions.
