Again, Apple uses its hegemonic and unfair practices to the detriment of competitors and to snatch consumers in favor of its own services.

It is perfect for anyone who loves any of our services and wants to get more at a lower price, and it is also great for families. Selected services included in the Apple One are also available for enjoyment on non-Apple devices, and you can cancel at any time.
