Verizon could soon become the first U.S. carrier to bundle an Apple One subscription for free with one of its plans. The network operator reportedly plans to announce the offer alongside the iPhone 14 series.
Apple One subscription pricing starts at $14.95 per month in the United States for a single user.
Verizon’s most expensive plan could soon become more attractive
A new MacRumors report details that Verizon will most likely bundle Apple One with its 5G Get More plan. The carrier’s most expensive plan, it currently costs $90 per month for a single user. Verizon already bundles subscriptions to Apple Music, Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ and 600GB of Verizon Cloud Storage as part of the plan. Combined, these services already cost well over $50 per month.
The report does not specify if the Apple One bundle will be available for existing subscribers. Verizon likely will announce the bundling of Apple One with its most expensive plan around the iPhone 14 launch, i.e., on or around Apple’s Far Out event on September 7.
Recently, U.K. carrier EE became the first carrier to bundle an Apple One subscription with a monthly cellphone plan.
Apple One bundles let you access Apple services at a discount
The individual Apple One plan bundles subscriptions to Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade and 50GB iCloud Storage into one. Subscribing to these services individually would cost $20.96 per month. Thanks to the bundle, they only have to pay $14.95. Higher Apple One tiers offer even more Apple services for even bigger savings.
It remains unclear if Verizon will allow users to upgrade to the Apple One Family plan for an additional fee. With the Family plan, you can share the Apple One bundle with your family members and get up to 200GB of iCloud storage.
The addition of the Apple One bundle would further improve the value proposition of Verizon’s most expensive plan.
