Apple continues to develop a unified future service package
It is rumored that Apple has been planning to offer a future service package that includes (Apple Music), (+ Apple TV) and (+ Apple News) in one subscription, and a new report found evidence that the iPhone manufacturer is already working on this package, according to To test code version (iOS 13.5.5).
It is noteworthy that the reports about the future Apple services package are not new, as Bloomberg Agency indicated in a report issued in 2019 that the company was negotiating deals with music producers and publishers to bring these contents together in one subscription.
And if purchased separately today, the cost of the Family Music subscription account for (Apple Music), (+ Apple TV), and (+ Apple News) is $ 30 per month, and it’s not clear what kind of discount Apple plans to offer when the services are sold as a package Integrated.
The company currently has four main subscription products: (Apple Music), (Apple News +), (Apple TV +) and (Apple Arcade), and subscription to (Apple Music) and (Apple News +) costs $ 9.99 per month each, While (Apple TV +) and (Apple Arcade) are priced at $ 4.99 per month each.
Through the future package, Apple can offer all its digital services at a lower price and keep users more connected to its ecosystem, although information about it stopped some time ago, but it seems that Apple is still working to provide this package.
The internal files of the iOS 13.5.5 trial version include a reference to “Package View” and “Package Subscription”, which were not present in the previous versions of iOS, and these signals are related to Apple’s service subscription management system, such as (Apple + News).
Although these signals in the iOS code are not directly related to a specific product, such as (Apple Music), they indicate that Apple has plans to offer a discount group with subscription services.
However, it may take a long time for this comprehensive package to be available, and as the Financial Times reported, Apple has signed new deals for Apple Music this year, but these deals do not include an agreement to link Apple Music with other Apple services through Package.
