Apple could bundle its subscription services into one package

Apple has made some interesting moves in 2019. Traditionally a hardware-focused company, the Cupertino giant held its first-ever event dedicated exclusively to services earlier this year, and with it, it introduced Apple News+, Apple TV+, and Apple Arcade. This was on top of the existing Apple Music subscription, which it launched a few years ago.

All of these subscription-based services are now available, but subscribing to all of them can add up to a significant cost, while also making subscriptions harder to manage. According to a report from Bloomberg, though, it looks like Apple is trying to address that by bundling its subscription services - specifically, Apple News+, TV+, and Music - into a single subscription. There's no mention of Apple Arcade, but it would be a logical move for all of its services to be included.

Bringing the services together under a single subscription could make the total cost for consumers lower, and therefore sway more of them to get into Apple's ecosystem. However, according to Bloomberg, it could also spell trouble for publications on Apple News+, which are reportedly unhappy with the platform already due to lower revenue.

The report doesn't go much further in terms of details, so it's not clear how much a subscription bundle would cost. However, the bundle could be launched sometime next year.
