Struggling to Get New Subscribers

Apple might be planning its own subscription bundle

2019 has been a year of change for Apple when it comes to the types of products it sells.

Apple has been struggling to add new subscribers to its Apple News+ service that launched in March, according to a new report from CNBC that cites people familiar with ‌Apple News‌+.

Apple News Plus lets you follow your favorite titles now. It's the year Apple embraced the subscription services model in an attempt to make up for lagging iPhone revenue.

Apple TV+ is facing strong competition from Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, and more.

It features a foldable display on the inside, and a secondary screen on the outside, but the secondary screen is much smaller. Motorola has also included the Retro Razr mode as an Easter Egg which users can access from the quick menu section.

In any case, this would not be Apple's first attempt at bundling subscriptions; it has already bundled Apple TV+ with Apple Music for students.

An Apple services bundle for a single monthly fee could become a reality "as soon as 2020". One outlet is said to receive under $20,000 from News+ subscriptions, less than expected and less than it got from Texture, the app Apple bought to rebrand as News+. Now that all of these new subscriptions are out there, it may not be long before Apple looks to bundle them together.

Because of this, it's unlikely that we'll be able to benefit from this bundle that the company is planning. Currently, of the subscription money that Apple charges in total for News+, 50 percent goes to the company and the rest goes to the publishers.

Apple TV+ costs $4.99 a month and can be shared between six users, while an Apple Music individual plan is $9.99 a month, and an Apple Music Family Sharing plan is $14.99 a month.
