Apple has long used lengthy free trial periods to advertise its subscription services. When it launched Apple TV Plus last year it gave customers a whole year of the service for free with the purchase of an eligible device, and recently extended these trials by up to three months. Three months is also the standard trial period for Apple Music. Until now, however, Apple has only offered a one month free trial of Apple Arcade with new sign-ups.

The Apple One subscription bundle’s best feature is actually the iCloud storage

Following September’s Apple event — packed, in typical fashion, with new hardware like the iPad Air and a low-cost Apple Watch SE to go along with its top-of-the-line Apple Watch Series 6 (but, sadly, no new iPhone) — it’s the lowly iCloud photo and backup service that may have the biggest impact on your relationship with the company, through the newly announced Apple One subscription bundle.

Apple One bundles together a number of the key services the company has rolled out over the last two years, including Apple Music , Apple TV Plus , Apple Arcade  and, for the highest tier, Apple News Plus and the newly announced Fitness Plus. Surprisingly, iCloud storage, which barely gets a mention at these kinds of events, served as the anchor for these bundles.

Apple Bundles TV, Music, News And More In Services Push

Apple said Tuesday it is putting TV, music, news and more in a subscription bundle as it increases its push into services tied to its iPhone “ecosystem.”

An Apple One bundle to be available later this year will start at $15 monthly and include a freshly launched fitness service tied to Apple Watch.

The Silicon Valley titan made no mention of a keenly anticipated iPhone 5G considered vital to the company’s fortunes, with analysts expecting that debut next month, due to disruption in production caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The subscription bundle highlights Apple’s efforts to put more emphasis on digital content and services amid a sluggish global smartphone market.

The $15 Apple One bundle includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, the Apple Arcade game service and iCloud storage. A $20 family plan can be shared by up to six people.

An upgraded $30 bundle adds Apple Fitness+, Apple News+ and
