With Apple’s video service on the runway, the company has enough parts to create subscription bundles that rhyme with what Amazon offers.
- AppleCare will run you anywhere from $129 to $199 depending on your iPhone model over two years.
- 2TB of iCloud storage is $120 a year.
- Apple Music goes for $120 a year.
- And now there’s Apple’s video effort, which may land somewhere between Netflix’s $12.99 standard plan, HBO Now’s $14.99 and Netflix’s top of the line $15.99 plan. Call Apple video $120 a year as it tries to gain share.
Apple has plenty of parts and bundling a few makes good sense.
Add it up and you’re paying $460 a year to Apple in subscriptions should you opt for all of those services. Wouldn’t it make sense for an Apple bundle that would run $300 a year that includes all of those services? Apple could also do tiered accounts ranging from $150 to $300 a year.
