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.”

It’s June, which means it’s Pride Month. This takes place every year to honor the ongoing struggle for civil rights for the LGBTQ+ community, as well as the achievements of those LGBTQ+ individuals.

One of the things I look forward to each year for Pride Month is Apple’s release of the Apple Watch Pride Band. In 2016, Apple distributed exclusive Pride bands to its employees who participated in San Francisco’s Pride parade.

I tried the new OnePlus 12 in white. It’s the Elvis Presley of Android phones
OnePlus 12 Glacial White held in hand against a marble surface.

We're long past the days when phones were distinguished solely based on their design. Despite more modern form factors such as foldables, the contemporary slab phone design reigns supreme -- because why reinvent the wheel when the current one gives you perfect traction on all roads? That said, phone brands have never stopped imagining newer design tweaks to help phones stand out, and a phone's color is a primary focus of attention.

Within the limited dimensions of the back panel, smartphone brands have persistently iterated different color choices, combinations, and textures over the past few years. We have seen trends such as textures under glass, gradients, vegan leather, and more. But OnePlus is taking a rather simple step of launching a new white color variant of the OnePlus 12. The Glacial White OnePlus 12 has been available in China since the phone was originally launched last December and is now moving out of the mainland as a limited edition.

AMD may be doing something unprecedented with Ryzen 9000
A render of a Ryzen 9000 CPU.

AMD's Ryzen 9000 processors are right around the corner, set to launch this month -- and we just got our first hint about how much they might cost. An early preorder from a Slovenian retailer revealed the pricing for all four Zen 5 desktop chips. On the whole, it's good news. AMD appears to be doing something that hardly ever happens by keeping the prices lower than they were at the launch of Zen 4. However, that doesn't mean that buying the new processors will save you money.

The preorders at Funtech, a Slovenian retailer, are now open, and this just might be the first place that's already selling Zen 5. The flagship Ryzen 9 9950X was listed at 660 euros ($708 at current exchange rates), followed by the Ryzen 9 9900X at 500 euros ($536), the Ryzen 7 9700X at 400 euros ($429), and lastly, the Ryzen 5 9600X, priced at 310 euros ($332).
