It does seem like those reports about Apple’s forthcoming subscription bundle were true. The latest beta of Apple Music for Android has reportedly confirmed that these new subscription bundles are happening soon as will be named – Apple One.
New code within Apple Music beta for Android suggests that Apple is planning to bundle its services into a unified Apple One subscription. The code was discovered by 9to5Google which confirms the possibility of the feature. However, it is not yet clear when Apple will release an Apple One subscription.
A Bloomberg report had previously reported about Apple’s plans for an all-in-one subscription. There might be an entry-level subscription for the service as well which will include Apple TV+ and Apple Music and premium bundles will include Apple Arcade, Apple News+, iCloud Storage, and more. In addition, Apple One is adopted as a working name.
However, Apple Music Beta version 3.4.0 suggests that the company might have settled with the name and internally its codenamed as “Aristotle”. Check out the strings below that suggests Apple will incorporate Apple Music with Apple One when it is available.
Moreover, Apple One will not overlap your existing Apple Music account which means that you will not pay double for the service. Furthermore, it looks like you will not be able to manage your Apple One subscription from the Apple Music app for Android. What this means is that you will have to make use of iOS, macOS, or tvOS to renew your subscription.
There have been no pricing details available in the code along with its availability. However, we can presume that Apple might launch it at its 15th September event next week. Do bear in mind that the final word rests with Apple and these are mere speculations at this point.
