Apple One, Apple TV+, and Apple Music Get Price Increases

Apple has just announced price increases for some of its subscription services including Apple Music and Apple TV+ (via 9to5Mac). The Apple One subscription that bundles together the aforementioned two services plus Apple Arcade, iCloud+, Apple News+, and Apple Fitness+ is also getting more expensive starting today.

The Apple Music individual plan now costs $10.99/month instead of $9.99, and the price per year also went from $99 to $109. There’s a $2 difference for the Apple Music Family plan which just went from $14.99/month to $16.99.

“The change to Apple Music is due to an increase in licensing costs, and in turn, artists and songwriters will earn more for the streaming of their music. We also continue to add innovative features that make Apple Music the world’s best listening experience,” Apple said in a press release.

Apple TV+ used to be the cheapest paid streaming service at $4.99/month, but the new $6.99/month price matches Netflix’s upcoming ad-supported plan. The annual cost has also gone from $49.99 to $69.

“We introduced Apple TV+ at a very low price because we started with just a few shows and movies. Three years later, Apple TV+ is home to an extensive selection of award-winning and broadly acclaimed series, feature films, documentaries, and kids and family entertainment from the world’s most creative storytellers,” an Apple spokesperson explained.

Lastly, the price increases for the different Apple One tiers go from $2 to $3. Here’s the new price structure:

  • Apple One Individual: $16.95/month (previously $14.95)
  • Apple One Family: $22.95/month (previously $19.95)
  • Apple One Premier: $32.95/month (previously $29.95)

All price increases have gone live today for new subscribers. Existing subscribers will be notified 30 days before their current subscription gets renewed at a higher price.
