Apple One's Premier Tier Available in 17 Additional Countries Starting Next Week [Update: Now Available]

Apple today announced that the Premier tier of its all-in-one subscription bundle Apple One will be available in 17 additional countries starting November 3, including Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates. The press release was brought to our attention by German website Macerkopf.

apple services newsroom
Apple One allows customers to subscribe to multiple Apple services through a single plan with unified billing, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple News+, Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness+, and iCloud+ with 2TB of storage. However, Apple said Apple News+ will be remaining limited to the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia, so Apple One's Premier tier won't include Apple News+ in the 17 new countries where it is launching next week.

In the United States, Apple One's Premier tier is priced at $29.95 per month, offering savings of over $20 per month compared to standard monthly pricing for each of the individual services included with the bundle. With Family Sharing, up to six family members can access all the included services in Apple One with their own personal accounts.

I really wish Apple would update the iCloud+ options. Why is the individual Appel One iCloud+ option only 50GB? I already pay for the 200GB plan, and really wish they offered a 500GB plan. However, the next step up is a whopping 2TB, which I don’t need at all! If I go with the individual plan, I’ll wind up paying for the 200GB for an extra 2.99, which means I should probably just go with the Family plan, which I don’t need for myself. It’s annoying and frustrating!

I have both iTunes Match and Apple Music and they work great together, no problem at all.
iTunes Match is included with Apple Music. Both services expose a new setting called "Sync Library", which either matches your ripped music to iTunes Store (DRM-free) or uploads to iCloud Music Library (does not count toward iCloud storage space).

You should cancel iTunes Match.

I learnt the hard way as well, paying for iTunes Match unnecessarily for 5 years. Apple should make people aware of this more than practically in small print. At least when it’s time for renewal, Apple should say as I subscribe to Music do I still want iTunes Match. It doesn’t
There were originally some subtle differences between the two services, with the most notable one being that Apple Music subscribers who weren't also paying for iTunes Match would be stuck with DRM-encumbered Apple Music tracks for tracks matched from their own libraries.

This wasn't a huge problem unless you were looking for free 256kbps AAC upgrades to lower-quality tracks, or you lost your original library and wanted to re-download them from your own library, but it was a notable difference.

However, Apple fixed this back in late 2016, and for all intents and purposes, Apple Music does include iTunes Match, although there is still one interesting difference that I think still applies.... According to a conversation I had with an Apple Senior Product specialist a few years ago ('https://www.ilounge.com/index.php/news/comments/apple-clarifies-relationship-between-apple-music-and-itunes-match'), you'll actually be matching your tracks against different catalogues depending on which service you subscribe to. Apple Music subscribers only match against the Apple Music catalogue, while iTunes Match subscribers match tracks against the iTunes Store catalogue. Probably not a significant difference, though, as any tracks that don't match simply get uploaded and stored in your iCloud Music Library anyway.

I'm a day one premier subscriber. Happy with the value. Wife is using Fitness & Arcade. We already were paying for Music + 2TB Tier and I am reading more with News. So it's a good deal. The iCloud security improvements were a nice surprise.

My hope is Apple continues adding value to Premier ahead of raising prices.

1. More news+ magazines
2. More arcade games
3. More 'freebies' like lyrics, lossless audio and iCloud security via Private Relay
4. Additional services get bundled automatically

If apple chooses to just raise prices every couple of years with inflation, the value will become less for me especially if we stop using Fitness+
