Apple subscription price rises revealed – here’s how much extra you’ll pay

Apple has just raised the monthly price of several of its subscription services including Apple TV+, the tech giant’s Netflix rival. If you’re signed up, the streaming service will now cost you £8.99 per month instead of £6.99 – £1 more than Netflix’s Basic £7.99 tier.

Spotify rival Apple Music avoided the price hike and remains at £10.99 per month. The California based tech firm also didn’t touch the price of workout service Apple Fitness+ or its iCloud+ cloud storage options.

Here are the Apple subscription service UK monthly price rises in full:

Apple TV+

  • £6.99 to £8.99

Apple News+

  • £9.99 to £12.99

Apple Arcade

  • £6.99 to £8.99

Apple One

  • Individual: £16.95 to £18.95
  • Family: £22.95 to £24.95
  • Premier: £32.95 to £34.95

These prices will apply to all new subscribers and for current customers when they are next billed.

We’ve seen a lot of similar rises in subscription previous recently, with Netflix pushing its Basic service up £1 per month to £7.99 (though it no longer allows new customers for this tier) and its Premium service up £2 per month to £17.99. The cheapest Netflix subscription is £4.99 per month, nut includes ads. The cheapest without ads for new customers is £10.99.

Apple announce all products will be ‘Net Zero’ by 2030

Disney+ will also soon jack up its monthly cost from £7.99 to £10.99, a huge jump of £36 extra per year. Disney gives you the option to subscribe annually to save money though, which Apple and Netflix don’t.
