Apple Music, TV+ and News+ bundle confirmed by Apple?

Apple may have accidentally confirmed the existence of an incoming bundle of their subscription services Apple Music, TV+ and News+.

Rumours regarding a bundle of Apple’s subscription services began in November 2019 in a report from Bloomberg. Code has been found in Apple’s latest beta referring to ‘bundle offer’ and ‘bundle subscription, showing that they are at least looking into adding a bundle option in the future.

Apple subscription services are priced as follows:

  • Apple Music: $9.99/month
  • Apple News+: $9.99/month
  • Apple TV+: $4.99/month

The bundle will likely come at a reduced price of around $19.99/month.

This comes as Apple adds audio to their News+ service, making it more appealing to podcast listeners, a huge and growing market.

There is one excluded Apple subscription service, Apple Arcade. This may be due to Apple targeting a different demographic between Apple Arcade and News+.

Note, nothing is officially confirmed until Apple publicly announce such a bundle.
