True to its longtime strategy, Apple wants its entire ecosystem sealed off other “intruders.” Apple One subscription is making it harder for other service-oriented brands to get into this exclusive environment.
As announced during the annual Apple Event, pre-recorded in the tech giant’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, California, Apple One offers users subscription services in one simple plan, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and iCloud.
Apple is lowkey locking in its customers in over 100 countries and regions to access all Apple services across all Apple devices by offering subscription at reasonable rates.
