In a significant move, Apple has just unveiled price increases for some of its beloved subscription-based services. Subscribers to Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and Apple News+ in the US and numerous other countries worldwide will be impacted by these alterations.
Here’s the breakdown of the price changes in the US:
- Apple Arcade: Bouncing from $4.99 per month to $6.99 per month.
- Apple TV+: Shifting from $6.99 per month to $9.99 per month.
- Apple News+: Rising from $9.99 per month to $12.99 per month.
For annual Apple TV+ subscribers, the price now stands at $99 per year, up from the previous $69 per year.
These adjustments are not exclusive to individual services; Apple One bundles that encompass these offerings are also experiencing price hikes. The new rates for the bundles are as follows:
- Individual: Up from $16.95 per month to $19.95 per month.
- Family: Escalating from $22.95 per month to $25.95 per month.
- Premier: Climbing from $32.95 per month to $37.95 per month.
Immediate action is being taken, with the changes already in effect for new subscribers. Existing subscribers will observe the alterations on their renewal date, 30 days from today. Apple is committed to ensuring its subscribers are well-informed, planning to dispatch email notifications about the forthcoming modifications, a practice it initiated after last year’s price adjustments.
In the United States, this marks the inaugural price surge for Apple Arcade and Apple News+ since their inception in November 2019. Apple TV+ experienced its first rate increase last October, shifting from $4.99 per month to $6.99 per month.
Notably, these price modifications do not encompass Apple Music and Apple Fitness+ at this time.
