APPLE ONE, the tech giant’s big services bundle, is launching globally today.
This is according to Bloomberg reporters who claim the launch date was revealed by the Apple’s chief financial officer, Luca Maestri.
The service brings together fan favourites Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and Apple News Plus and more all for one monthly subscription fee.
Apple One is avaliable in three different tiers depending on how much you want to spend and who will be using it.
The tiers are Individual, Family, and Premier.
The cheapest is the Individual tier, which gives you Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage for a $14.95 (£14.95) monthly fee.
The Family tier is similar but you get 200GB of iCloud storage and an Apple Music family plan for $19.95 (£19.95) a month.
Lastly, the Premier option costs $29.95 (£29.95) a month and gives you access to Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, 2TB of iCloud storage, Apple News Plus, and Apple Fitness Plus.
However, the Fitness Plus app doesn’t have an official launch date yet so its unclear whether the Premier option will be cheaper to accommodate this.
Apple’s fitness app is expected to launch in the next quarter.
On it’s own it will cost $9.99 and includes training plans for lots of activities like yoga, cycling and core strength.
Bundling subscription services together will be cheaper than buying them individually.
iPhone tricks to try today
Here are some of the best…
- Typing cursor – When typing, hold down the space bar to turn your keyboard into a trackpad, letting you move around words and sentences more easily
- Close all Safari tabs – To do this in one go, simply hold the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner, and press close all tabs
- Delete lots of photos quickly – Hold down on a photo and then drag your finger diagonally in Photos to select lots of images at once, then hit delete
- Convert currency quickly – Swipe down from the top of your Home screen (or swipe left to right on an iPhone X or later model), then tap in the bar and type a currency (like $200) and it will automatically covert to your local currency
- Check if you’re due a battery upgrade – Batteries inside smartphones degrade over time. Just go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, and check out the Maximum Capacity reading. Generally a battery is considered worn when you’re down to 80% capacity. If you’re below, you can buy a battery swap from Apple
- Move apps around faster – Hold an app until it starts wiggling, then (while still holding) tap other apps, causing them to stack so you can move them around easier
