Apple One: Abonnement-Bundle

Apple’s Prime equivalent ‚Apple One‚ will launch in October – According to Bloomberg, Apple plans to launch its all-in-one subscription bundle in October, after months of rumors that the company was working on one. This follows earlier reports, including another from Bloomberg, saying Apple plans to launch an Amazon Prime-like subscription bundle. But this report has many more details to consider than before. … Apple One will be part of iOS 14. It’s currently not a visible part of the iOS 14 beta, but Apple has held features until launch before – usually those that are related to hardware changes in its iPhone lineup that are not announced until months after the first iOS beta reaches users and developers. … The lowest-price tier would include only Apple Music and Apple TV+, the next one up would add Apple Arcade, and another beyond that would add Apple News+. Additionally, an even higher tier would include more iCloud storage.“
