Apple to launch its Apple One subscription bundle on Friday

Apple’s recently announced subscription bundle, Apple One, will launch on Friday, October 30.

Company CEO Tim Cook revealed the launch date during an earnings call with investors on Thursday.

Apple One offers access to a bunch of the tech giant’s digital services for a single monthly subscription, saving you money over individual sign-ups.

The Individual plan comprises Apple Arcade, Apple Music, Apple TV+, and iCloud (50GB) for $15 per month.

The Family plan gives up to six people access to the same services for $20 per month, along with 200GB of iCloud storage.

The biggest and priciest bundle is the Premier plan, which for $30 gets you all of the above services (including sharing with up to five others) plus Apple’s recently announced Fitness+ and News+ offerings, along with 2TB of iCloud storage.

With the Family and Premier plans, participating members can access all the included services with their own personal accounts and preferences, the company said.

The bundles allow you to make savings of between $6 and $25, depending on the plan you choose. You can find out more about the kind of savings to be had by checking out this Digital Trends article.

If you’re already an avid user of Apple’s digital services then it’s likely that one of these options is going to be a good fit.

Apple is offering a 30-day free trial for any of the individual services that you don’t already have.

Apple One makes enjoying Apple subscription services easier than ever, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud, and more,” Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, said last month when the company announced the subscription bundle, adding, “With Apple One, you can access the best of Apple entertainment across all your favorite devices with one simple subscription.”

Elon Musk says he will speak to Tim Cook about changing the ‘Apple tax’

Elon Musk has said he’s going to have a word with Apple boss Tim Cook about "adjusting" the 30% fee that Apple takes from in-app purchases made via its App Store.

Musk, CEO of Twitter (now X), said in a tweet on Wednesday that changing the way that it's charged would maximize the amount that creators on Twitter would receive when followers subscribe to their exclusive content.

The Apple Vision Pro has given VR its iPhone moment

"One more thing" means you're about to be treated to something groundbreaking -- and that's exactly what happened when Apple CEO Tim Cook uttered those fateful three words at the end of the recent Worldwide Developers Conference 2023 keynote. The Apple Vision Pro is not just another VR headset; no, it's an incredible piece of technology that pushes the boundaries of what we can expect from both virtual reality and augmented reality. The display tech, sensor quality, and polish are like nothing we've ever seen before in a headset — and they signal a big jump forward in VR and AR tech.

The only quibble is the price: $3,500. That's a whole lot of cash, and due to that, I'm not confident the Vision Pro will appear in every other house in the next few years.

The one big mistake Apple made with its Vision Pro headset

Apple made one big mistake during the Vision Pro’s launch: No one onstage wore it or was pictured doing so afterward. Instead, only models in the carefully curated video presentation had it on their faces — entirely removing us as observers from the experience. In fact, we haven’t seen any real people wearing it at all.

It’s a very stark contrast to Samsung’s big VR push almost a decade ago, and Apple would be very wise to learn from its archnemesis if it wants the odd-looking Vision Pro not to be treated with extreme caution by normal people.
