Apple Music for Android app reveals ‘Apple One’ services bundle

We don’t know its price or features, but we know Apple’s subscription bundle will be named Apple One and include Apple Music.

Whoops! It looks like some code visible in the latest release of Apple Music for Android (3.4.0 beta) has confirmed the rumored Apple subscription services bundle. Discovered by 9to5Google, the APK (an Android application bundle) contains some visible text strings that give away the game.

The pertinent code strings are:

<string name=”applemusic_with_aristotle_subtext”>Included in Apple One %s</string>

<string name=”aristotle_main_subtext”>Subscription Bundle %s</string>

<string name=”aristotle_main_more_info”>Your Apple Music subscription will be included in Apple One starting %s. You will not be charged for both subscriptions.</string>

<string name=”aristotle_renewaloption_subtext”>You can manage your Apple One subscription using your iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or Mac.</string>

From these snippets, we can see that the code name for the subscription bundle feature is “aristotle” and that it’s actual public name will be Apple One. We also can see that Apple Music will obviously be a part of it.

What this doesn’t tell us

This all but confirms the existence and name of Apple’s subscription bundle, the Apple One name, and the inclusion of Apple Music, but it doesn’t tell us much else.

We don’t know what else will be included in the bundle, or even if there will be multiple bundles (as an earlier Bloomberg report suggested). We don’t know what it will cost. We don’t know when it will launch—though strings appearing in the latest Apple Music beta for Android would seemingly indicate that a launch is imminent.

Perhaps we’ll hear all about the Apple One bundle (or bundles) during the streaming event on September 15.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
