Apple One is a subscription bundle of the Silicon Valley company’s services that, when combined, cost less than they would when individually packaged together. If you’re looking to save a couple of dollars each month, here’s how to sign up for Apple One using your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

There are three different Apple One plans you can choose from. The Family and Premier tiers can be shared with up to five users:

  • Individual ($12.95/month, save $6/month): Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, 50 GB of iCloud storage
  • Family ($19.95/month, save $8/month): Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, 200 GB of iCloud storage
  • Premier ($29.95/month, save $25/month): Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, 2 TB of iCloud storage, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+ (available late 2020)

Now that you know which Apple One plan you want to subscribe to, let’s get started.
