Apple Inc. /zigman2/quotes/202934861/composite AAPL -4.19% is reportedly planning to offer bundles of some of its services that will give users a discount if they sign on with multiple offerings, according to Bloomberg News . The company's bundles could launch as soon as October when the company debuts its new iPhones, the Thursday report said. The forthcoming bundles could include a more basic plan that combines Apple Music and Apple TV+ as well as more expensive tiers that add on the Apple Arcade gaming service, the Apple News+ service, and iCloud storage, per the report. Apple is also looking at a subscription service for online fitness classes, according to Bloomberg. This offering could emerge as a rival to those services put out by Peloton Interactive Inc. /zigman2/quotes/208035743/composite PTON +0.89% and others, though Cowen & Co. analyst John Blackledge wrote that he wasn't too concerned about the impact to Peloton and likened the situation to Match Group Inc.'s /zigman2/quotes/207178501/composite MTCH -3.40% ability to withstand competition from Facebook Inc.'s /zigman2/quotes/205064656/composite FB -2.25% dating product due to its strong position in the market.
