“Apple One” is a service that allows you to use all the subscription services provided by Apple at a great value. We examined how much it is profitable and what kind of users are profitable.
Two types, individual plan and family plan
At the “Time Flies” event on September 15, local time, Apple announced that it will offer “Apple One,” which is a collection of paid services, from the fall of 2020.
You can sign up for a combination of Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade, and iCloud storage in Japan, with individual and family plans available. Family plans allow up to 6 people to share services, and iCloud storage can share capacity.
The price of Apple One is 1,100 yen / month for the individual plan and 1,850 yen / month for the family plan, and the contents are as follows.
- Apple Music
- Apple TV +
- Apple Arcade
- iCloud storage (individual: 50GB, family: 200GB)
Compare with single contract amount
The following is a comparison with the case where each service for Apple One is contracted separately.
|Service name||Single contract fee
|Single contract fee
|Apple Music||980 yen / month||1480 yen / month|
|Apple TV +||600 yen / month||600 yen / month||Apple Arcade||600 yen / month||600 yen / month|
|iCloud storage||50GB: 130 yen / month||200GB: 400 yen / month|
|Total single contract amount||2,310 yen / month||3,080 yen / month|
|Apple One||1,100 yen / month||1,850 yen / month|
|Difference from a single contract||1,210 yen / month||1,230 yen / month|
|(Reference) Apple Music + iCloud||1,110 yen / month||1,880 yen / month|
Almost the same price as Apple Music + iCloud storage
Of the charges for each service, you can see that the total monthly charge for Apple Music and iCloud storage (¥ 1,110 / month for individuals and ¥ 1,880 / month for families) and the monthly charge for Apple One are almost the same.
This means that if you have a paid plan for Apple Music and iCloud Storage, you’ll get Apple TV + and Apple Arcade for free if you sign up for Apple One.
If you share iCloud storage with your family and 200GB isn’t enough, you can purchase the storage plan you need separately and add more capacity. The upper plan of 200GB is 2TB (1,300 yen / month).
Unregistered service is free for the first month
For each service included in Apple One, you can try all unsubscribed services as a free trial for the first month, and your monthly plan will be renewed after the free period ends.
Apple TV + is free for one year when you purchase and register products such as iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and Apple Music student plan subscribers also get free.
Apple TV + has released a number of works in audio formats such as Dolby Atmos, which allows you to enjoy the latest firmware delivered to AirPods Pro and spatial audio that can be used with iOS 14.
