Apple increasing Apple Music subscription prices for students
Apple is increasing the price of its discounted Apple Music student subscription in several countries worldwide, with subscribers reporting that they are receiving emails from Apple informing them of the forthcoming change to their plan beginning with their next monthly payment.
As reported by MacRumors, subscribers in Australia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Indonesia, Israel, and Kenya have reported receiving notifications from Apple about the upcoming change.
Apple hasn’t shared an official list of countries where the new pricing structure is being introduced, so more countries could be added to the list.
Thank you for subscribing to Apple Music. We wanted to let you know about an upcoming change to this subscription. Apple is raising the price of this subscription from USD 1.49 per month to USD 1.99 per month.
On Twitter, a student in South Africa shared the price increase notification they received from Apple, informing them that their Apple Music subscription will increase from USD 1.49 per month to USD 1.99 per month moving forward.
Apple’s student subscription offers full access to Apple Music at a lower price. In the UK, students get access to Apple Music at £4.99/month, compared to £9.99 for regular subscribers. The subscription includes access to all of the service’s catalogue of 90 million songs, ad-free music, Lyrics view, live and on-demand radio stations, and more.
