Apple on Monday hiked monthly and annual subscription prices in the U.S. for its streaming services Apple TV+ and Apple Music. It also raised prices for Apple One bundle.

As of this writing, a monthly individual subscription to Apple Music costs $10.99, versus the previous price of $9.99. Meanwhile, Spotify currently starts at $9.99 a month.

Access to Apple TV+ costs $6.99 per month, more than the previous price of $4.99 per month. Apple TV+ has been competitively priced against other streaming services, some of which have also raised prices in recent months. It also has a smaller library of content. Competitor Disney+ starts at $7.99 a month, while Netflix starts at $9.99 a month but has an ad-supported service at $6.99 a month in the works.

Apple also hiked annual subscription prices for those services and raised the entry-level cost for Apple One, which adds storage and the Arcade gaming service, from $14.95 to $16.95.

International markets and some other bundles will see similar price increases.
