Apple is planning to bundle Apple TV+, Music and Arcade as part of an 'Apple One' bundle, according to a report by Bloomberg. The company is reportedly also working on a fitness app for Apple TV.
Music & TV in a bundle
Apple will bundle its own services, according to a report by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman who says that the main benefit for users will be savings of 2-5 dollars per month. Internally the bundle initiative is known as 'Apple One',
The basic bundle will include Apple Music and TV+, the company's music and video subscription services. Larger bundles will add Apple News+, the Arcade game service, and iCloud storage.

The report notes that Apple is also considering giving new buyers of the Apple TV box one year free access to Arcade. The company has been ramping up its ambitions for console gaming and Arcade now offers over 100 games as part of the subscription plan. Some games are even released on Arcade before they are made available on PS4, Xbox and PC.
Fitness app for Apple TV
Lastly, Bloomberg claims that Apple is planning to a launch a new subscription for virtual fitness classes that can be used on Apple TV, iPad, and iPhone.
It is not the first time that we hear about a new fitness app. MacRumors has previously found references to a fitness app in the iOS 14 source code.
Apple has in recent years increased its focus on streaming services and is now competing head to head with Spotify, Netflix and others who are available through the company's platforms.
Bloomberg believes that 'Apple One' will launch as early as October together with this year's new devices.
