Apple One subscription isn’t phased by different Apple IDs for Apple Music and iCloud

The Apple One subscription bundle service promises to make your monthly Apple subs easier by roll them into one 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 one user on Twitter. “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 on 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, family tier features Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage for $19.95 per month. It can be shared among up to six family members. Premier (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.
