Sharing your Apple Music Family subscription — or your Apple One Family or Premier bundle — with others in your household is a great way to save money while enjoying Apple’s vast catalog of streaming music content. Here’s how to get it done.

An individual Apple Music subscription costs $9.99 per month. Spend $14.99 instead, though, and you get a family plan for yourself and up to five other people.

Compared to all six people buying their own Apple Music subscription, that’s an immediate saving of $44.95 right there. Even if you have only one other person in your household, moving to a family plan will save $5.

Choosing between Apple Music and Apple One

Just as the Apple Music family plan saves you money, so the Apple One bundle does — under the right circumstances. It’s an issue of what else you use from Apple, and also which version of the bundle you buy.

For $14.95 per month, you can get the Apple One Individual Plan and it does include Apple Music — but only for you. To get the benefit of a family Apple Music subscription, you have to buy the Family Plan at $19.95 per month, or the Premier one at $29.95.

In either case, you need to buy based on what you are actually using, or will actually use. So with the Family Plan, you need to know that you will be getting:

  1. Apple Music Family
  2. Apple TV+
  3. Apple Arcade
  4. 200GB iCloud storage

If you only care about sharing Apple Music with your family, the Apple One Family bundle is not worth it. However, if you use or need the other services, it is more economic to buy them through this Apple One Family bundle.

It’s exactly the same with the more expensive Apple One Premier bundle, in how you need to decide what you are using, what you plan to use — and whether you want to share any of it.

However, Apple One Premier bundle provides more, and some of it is exclusive to this tier. Altogether, the Premier bundle has:

  • Apple Music Family
  • Apple TV+
  • Apple Arcade
  • 2TB iCloud storage
  • Apple News+
  • Apple Fitness+

It’s Apple News+ and Apple Fitness+ that are exclusive to the Premier bundle. Those and the 2TB iCloud storage space — which can be shared amongst your family – that can make the Premier bundle the best way to get Apple Music for everyone in your household.

There is still the issue, then, of adding a family member to your Apple Music subscription. The way you do that depends on whether you’re a new user yourself, …….
