Apple’s all-in-one subscription service bundle, Apple One, launches today, according to a confirmation given to Bloomberg by Luca Maestri, Apple’s CFO.

CEO Tim Cook also confirmed the impending launch of the bundle yesterday during the company’s quarterly investor call.

Apple One offers three plans: individual, family, and premier. Each offers a subset or combination of Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud, Apple News+ and soon Apple Fitness+.

The individual plan includes Apple Music for one user, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50 GB of iCloud storage for $14.95 per month.

The family plan expands Apple Music into a family plan and increases that 50 GB of iCloud storage to 200 GB. It costs $19.95 per month.

Finally, Premier adds Apple News+ and Apple Fitness+ and goes all the way to 2 TB of iCloud storage for $29.95 per month. This subscription is initially only available in the US, UK, Canada and Australia, the countries where Apple News+ is available.

On a related note, Maestri also said that Apple Fitness+ will launch by the end of this year. (Of course, it won’t be available as part of the premier bundle until it launches.) Apple Fitness+ was recently announced; it offers different types of workout videos for users to practice at home or in the gym, with integrations with Apple Music and the Health app on iPhones and the Apple Watch.

When Apple reported earnings yesterday, it posted another month of service growth (16.3 percent year-over-year, for a total of $14.55 billion). Cupertino has looked to services as one of its ways to make up for slower-growing iPhone sales in recent years. So far, Apple Music has been a huge success, but the jury is out on TV+ and News+ seems to be out on a limb.
