Today ends the trial period of Apple One, the subscription service that offers us, in one, all the company’s subscriptions. If we signed up on the first day of her availability, today the 30 day courtesy is full and there are some things to keep in mind.
A subscription that includes them all
Apple One subscription is very simple. You sign up and automatically enjoy Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade, and more space in iCloud. But what if we were already subscribed? And the trial periods? This is what we want to talk about. Let’s go point by point.
First of all, let’s mention that some Apple One subscribers have seen their subscription automatically canceled by mistake. If we are faced with this situation, it is better to wait 24 hours for Apple to resolve it through servers,
Assuming we’ve used a service owned by Apple One before, let’s see what happens with billing. In my case, for example, I was billed 14.99 dollars per month for the Apple Music family on November 27. As we go along, Apple will give you back the subscription on a pro rata basis, that is, based on the days we used. In my case, I received a credit note worth 14.49 dollars. The same will happen with Apple Arcade and Apple TV +.
The special case of iCloud st orage
Storage space in iCloud has its own rules in Apple One. Remember that Apple offers us a space of 50 GB or 200 GB depending on whether we subscribe to the individual or family variant of the service. What if we already pay for storage? Apple tells us:
- If the iCloud storage included on Apple One is larger than your current plan: Your current iCloud storage plan is canceled and you will receive a pro-rated refund. Your total iCloud storage will be the amount included in your Apple One subscription.
- If the iCloud storage included in Apple One is the same as your current plan: During the free trial, you keep both your current iCloud storage plan and your iCloud storage on Apple One. When the trial is complete, your current iCloud storage plan is canceled. Your total iCloud storage will be the amount included in your Apple One subscription.
- If the iCloud storage included in Apple One is less than your current plan: You keep both your current iCloud storage plan and your iCloud storage on Apple One. If you’d rather keep only the storage included in your Apple One subscription, you can downgrade or cancel your current iCloud storage plan.
In short, this means that unless we pay for the 2TB plan, iCloud storage will be canceled at the end of Apple One’s free month. Fortunately, once it’s automatically canceled, we’ll be able to re-engage one of three offers (50, 200, or 2000 GB) that will be added to Apple One’s 50 or 200 GB storage.
Overall, the transition to Apple One is pretty straightforward. Of course, there are a few details to consider. There are on the one hand the subscriptions and the return of the additional payment and on the other hand the iCloud spaces. It is important that we take this into account to have Apple One to our liking.
