Do I have to save any money by subscribing to Apple One?

It depends on how many services above you already subscribe (or would like to subscribe). If you are going to subscribe to all of them in person, you will have to pay at least $ 40 per month, so the Premier plan will be worth it as well.

According to Apple, the Apple One Individual plan offers savings of over $ 6 per month at standard monthly prices, while the Family Plan offers savings of over $ 8 per month, and the Premier plan offers $ 25 per month, Or provides savings of more than. $ 300 per year.

The service that may interest people the most is the least attractive: iCloud photo and backup service. It is already a popular service that is required by practically anyone who stores photos, videos or music downloads. If you’re already paying $ 9.99 per month for 2TB of iToud storage, and also say subscribe to Apple Music, then the Premier plan may be eligible to receive both you and the rest .
