As the rumour mill suggested, Apple has announced an all-in-one subscription plan including many of its services. It's aptly named Apple One and is now available in a number of countries.

Here's what you need to know about Apple One, which gives you access to a number of Apple services via one simple subscription.

The service launched on 30 October and a month later reports started to appear suggesting that there were some issues with payment - more details below.

What does Apple One include?

Apple One is a single subscription for many of Apple's services like iCloud, Apple Music and Fitness+ (the latter should launch soon).

What's included depends on which plan you take so let's look at those, along with prices, below. You can access these services across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, and Mac.

Apple One prices & plans

Like so many subscription services, there are different plans or tiers to choose from when you sign up to Apple One. The service includes a 30-day free trial for any services that customers do not already have.

Here are those packages with prices and what you get:

How much do I save on Apple One?

As well as keeping things simple, the idea of Apple One is to save you money compared to subscribing to each service individually. So here's how much you can save by getting an Apple One plan.

  • Individual - £6/US$6 per month
  • Family - £7/US$8 per month
  • Premier - £22/US$25 per month

Apple One release date

At its online event on 15 September, Apple announced that the Apple One subscription would be available 'this fall'.

The services bundle was eventuallly made available on Friday 30 October.

However, Apple One isn't available everywhere. Apple said that "the Premier plan will be available in Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US, where Apple News+ is available, and Apple Fitness+ will join later this year." Many countries haven't yet got Apple News+.

Apple One problems

Within a month of the launch - and as the free trial period ended for those who signed up on 30 October - reports started appearing suggesting that there were issues with the way Apple was charging people for the combined services.

In some cases, users had been charged several times over, in other cases, customers have had to pay for each service separately.

Other customers were informed that their subscription to Apple One had expired - meaning that they lost access to the services in question. Read more about the Apple One problems.
