With the new subscription becoming available later this year, some might be wondering just which Apple One subscription they should buy. If you’re scratching your head, then we can help. Here’s what you need to know.

Which Apple One subscription should you buy?

There are three tiers available for Apple One and choosing which one you should buy all depends on your needs and what applications you plan on using. You’ll also want to take into account how many family members you want to give access to your plan, which will help determine whether the Individual, Family, or Premier plan fits your needs best.

A quick overview of the various Apple One subscriptions.

To help you get a better idea of which plan to choose, let’s go over them in a bit more detail.

Individual

The cheapest option of the three, the Individual plan comes in at $14.95 a month and gives you access to the following services:

  • Apple Music
  • Apple TV+
  • Apple Arcade
  • 50GB iCloud storage

This plan is great for individual users who don’t plan on sharing their access with anyone else. For just $15 a month you get unfiltered access to all the music. TV, and games that Apple has available, as well as 50GB of iCloud storage.

Family

Those who plan on sharing their access with others will want to look into the Family tier. For $19.95 a month you’ll get the following:

  • Apple Music
  • Apple TV+
  • Apple Arcade
  • 200GB iCloud storage
  • Share with up to five people

This is perfect for families who want the essentials. It’s a great deal that grants you access for five people for around $4 a piece.

Premier

Those who want access to all of Apple’s applications will want to go with Apple Premier. For $29.95 a month you’ll get:

  • Apple Music
  • Apple TV+
  • Apple Arcade
  • 2TB iCloud storage
  • Apple News+
  • Apple Fitness+

This is the crème de la crème of Apple One subscriptions and will get you access to all of the applications that Apple has to offer, including the new Fitness+ app that is set to release later this year.

All in all, the subscription you buy all comes down to what you need. Most people who have a significant other or family to share with will want to go with the Family tier, though those looking to dive into Apple Fitness+ and keep up with all the latest news will want to strike out with Premier. Of course, if it’s just you on your plan, then you’re going to be better off grabbing the Individual plan for just $14.95.

        It offers you weekly workout routines/videos with the subscription. It'll include weight lifting, running, dance, etc. Lots of options. It works with any iOS device, and I think if you have Apple Watch it will display your workout stats/readings on the device you're using, like Apple TV. I think there are a few more features in it besides that.

      I'd pick Premium for the all-in package, but Fitness+ is not available to me :(
