Recent reports claim that Apple will announce a new services bundle, Apple One at the upcoming September 15 event. Discoveries in the iOS 14 code and domain registrations reveal that the Cupertino tech giant is calling its services bundles ‘Apple One’ for sure.
In August, it was reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman that the iPhone maker is about to launch a new range of subscription bundles in October. Even in his report, he stated that the services package is referred to as Apple One internally.
Apple One- New Services Bundles
MacRumors has found several recently registered domains with Apple One branding. The report claims that contact’s information is redacted from the filing due to privacy concerns so it can not be said with certainty that the domains are in fact registered by the iPhone maker. The list of the reported domains are:
In addition, 9to5Mac found references to the alleged services bundles in iOS code. A series of features in the iPhone’s manage subscription screen has been recently added on the iPhone software. Previously, the publisher found references to the service packages in Apple Music app for Android. The discovered references are:
- Keep Apple One
- Cancel Apple One
- You can unsubscribe from Apple One and keep only what you want
Allegedly, the new bundles will allow users to subscribe to Apple’s different digital services for a lower monthly fee. Starting from a basic combination of Apple Music and Apple TV+, the company will gradually upgrade the subscription tiers with the inclusion of Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and extra iCloud storage in respective higher-priced bundles.
It is also reported that users will be given the option of Apple Family Sharing system support for Apple One bundles with up to 6 members. The bundles are designed to save around $2 to $5 per month depending on the tier.
The service bundles are speculated to be launched at the September 15 event along with the new Apple Watch Series 6, iPad line-up, AirPods, and other products. The appointment of Hollywood dealmaker, Tim Conolly to the company Apple TV+ division further supports the rumors of Apple plans to boost bundle deals.
