Apple certainly isn’t fighting inflation by raising prices for its three services, thereby creating inflation of its own. We’re talking about the Apple Music, Apple TV+, and Apple One bundles, all of which have gotten more expensive.
Apple TV+ adds $2 per month (if you pay monthly) or $10 per year (if you pay annually). The new prices are $6.99 per month or $69 per year.
The price increase for Apple Music is $1 for individuals and $2 for families, so the new price is $10.99 per month for the individual plan and $16.99 per month for the family plan.
Finally, the Apple One bundle, which includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud+, Apple News+ and Apple Fitness+, has gone up $3 for an individual plan (now $16.95 a month, up from $14.95 a month). plan (now $22.95 per month, up from $19.95) and also $3 off the Premier plan (now $32.95, up from $29.95).
An Apple spokesperson said TechCrunch With the following statement regarding price increase:-
Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple One subscription prices will increase starting today. The shift to Apple Music comes as licensing costs increase, and in turn, artists and songwriters earn more for streaming their music. We continue to add new features that make Apple Music the world’s best listening experience. Starting with just a few shows and movies, we introduced Apple TV+ at a low price. Three years later, Apple TV+ is home to a wide selection of award-winning and critically acclaimed series, feature films, documentaries and children’s and family entertainment from the world’s most innovative storytellers.
These prices are obviously all for the US market, but there’s no reason to believe that international markets won’t see similar price increases. Current subscribers must receive notifications of proposed price increases 30 days prior to renewing service at a higher price.
