Verizon plans to become the first U.S. carrier to include Apple One as a free perk with an eligible subscription in addition to launching iPhone 14 models later this month, according to information obtained by MacRumors from a carrier source.
Apple One will likely be included in Verizon’s most expensive “5G Get More” unlimited data plan, which costs $90 per month for one person. The fully loaded subscription already includes Apple Music, the option of Apple Arcade or Google Play Pass, Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, 600GB Verizon Cloud storage and more as free benefits. It’s unclear if existing subscribers will receive Apple One or if the offer will be for new customers only.
Following in the footsteps of UK carrier EE, Verizon will likely offer the individual tier of Apple One, which normally costs $14.95 per month and includes Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple TV+ and iCloud+ with 50GB of storage.
It’s unclear when Verizon plans to share this news, but the carrier will likely make an announcement sometime in September, along with Apple’s introduction of iPhone 14 models. Apple is widely expected to unveil the iPhone 14, Apple Watch Series 8, and more at an event at the Steve Jobs Theater on September 7, and the devices should be on sale by September 16 in the US and many other countries.
Verizon offering Apple One with a qualifying subscription can help lure customers to the carrier heading into the Christmas shopping season. The deal could also further bolster Apple’s services business, which set a June quarterly record with revenue of $19.6 billion and was the company’s second-largest source of revenue after iPhone sales.
