Apple One is a subscription bundle of the Silicon Valley company’s services that, when combined, cost less than they would when individually packaged together. If you’re looking to save a couple of dollars each month, here’s how to sign up for Apple One using your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
Table of Contents
There are three different Apple One plans you can choose from. The Family and Premier tiers can be shared with up to five users:
- Individual ($12.95/month, save $6/month): Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, 50 GB of iCloud storage
- Family ($19.95/month, save $8/month): Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, 200 GB of iCloud storage
- Premier ($29.95/month, save $25/month): Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, 2 TB of iCloud storage, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+ (available late 2020)
Now that you know which Apple One plan you want to subscribe to, let’s get started.
Start by opening the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad. If you can’t find it, swipe down on the middle of your home screen and use Apple’s built-in Spotlight search feature to locate the app.
Next, tap on your user profile tied to your Apple ID found at the top of the menu.
Select the “Subscriptions” option.
You will see an offer to sign up for Apple One near the top of the page. Tap the “Try It Now” link found under the “Get Apple One” listing.
Choose the plan that works best for you. You can choose from “Individual,” “Family,” or “Premier.” Select the “Start Free Trial” button to proceed.
A pop-up menu will appear confirming that you’d like to start your subscription. The subscription’s policy, price, and information about recurring payments will be displayed—double-press the Side button (or the Home button if your device has one) to confirm.
You have no successfully signed up for Apple One. Tap the “Done” button to start listing to music, stream video, or more.
Whether you want to upgrade your plan or drop it down a level, you can easily change your Apple One Plan.
Start by opening the “Settings” app.
As before, tap on your Apple ID found at the top of the menu.
Select the “Subscriptions” option.
Choose your “Apple One” subscription.
Tap on the Apple One plan you’d like to switch to—Individual, Family, or Premier.
A confirmation window will appear. Double press the Side or Home button to confirm the subscription change.
Alternatively, if you only want to keep one or two of the bundled services but don’t want to keep Apple One, select the “Choose Individual Services” button.
Here, you can choose which services you’d like to keep and then confirm the change.
The button will list how many services you’re going to subscribe to and the new monthly cost.
Canceling your Apple One subscription if you’re no longer using the bundled services (or if it is too expensive) is as easy as setting it up. Begin by opening the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad.
Tap on your user profile at the top of the screen that includes your Apple ID avatar.
Select the “Subscriptions” button.
Choose the “Apple One” subscription from the list of options.
Scroll down to the bottom of the menu and then tap the “Cancel Apple One” button.
Before you can cancel, Apple will try to retain your business. If you’re canceling because you’re not using all of the included services, you can choose to change your subscription to individual services like Apple Music and iCloud storage.
If you’re certain that Apple One isn’t for you, tap the “Cancel Apple One” button found at the bottom of the page.
