What distinguishes Apple from its competitors? First and foremost, of course, the sagacity of its leadership. If it does not, the Cupertino-based company would continue to produce electronics. However, the top management of Apple sitting intelligent people who understand that the infinite to go on the technique impossible, and in order not to lose their positions, you need to start to learn one more services. So for the past 5 years, the number of proprietary Apple services has grown to 10, half of which are distributed by subscription. But how do they now sell? Only all together.
According to Bloomberg, Apple will introduce a single subscription to its services already in 2020. It is unknown if it will include in the package all of the services, however, according to the sources, in Cupertino are planning to sell a single subscription to Apple Music, Apple TV+ Apple News+, that is, three of the four contentcentric platform.

It is possible for different countries services as part of a single subscription will be different, because, for example, Apple News+ works only on the territory of three countries in the world, and the Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ fully banned in China. So, for them, the package must vary.

The reason for this is likely to be a need to revise the pricing policy for each service individually, it might not be easy. The fact that now Apple pays royalties to authors and labels at a fixed size, and if it will have to reduce the subscription price, or it will itself receive less money, or will begin to pay less to the owners. Of course, neither option pure are not satisfied with any of the parties, and that means Apple and its partners will have to find a compromise.
