The Apple One subscription bundle service promises to make your monthly Apple subs easier by rolling them into a simple, one-off payment. But what if your existing subscriptions, such as Apple Music and iCloud accounts, are tied to different Apple IDs?
Fortunately, Apple’s longest-serving employee, Chris Espinosa, says that poses no problem. “It manages that,” he wrote in response to a question on Twitter. “I just double-checked.”
It manages that. I just double-checked.

Gauging from the other responses in the Twitter threat, this is an issue that would potentially be shared by a large number of people — meaning it’s great news that Apple solved it.
Apple announced its Apple One service Tuesday at its “Time Flies” keynote. Apple One offers three different tiers, offering savings from $6 to $25.
The individual tier includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade and 50GB of iCloud storage for $14.95 per month. Meanwhile, the family tier lets up to six people use Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade and 200GB of iCloud storage for $19.95 per month. The premier tier (not available everywhere) includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+ and 2TB of iCloud storage for $29.95 per month. It can also be shared among up to six family members.
