Apple Music has raised the subscription price for its student plan in the US, UK and Canada, as first reported 9do5Mac (over it TechCrunch). Although it increases the price from $ 4.99 to $ 5.99 per month in the U.S. and Canada, student students in the UK can expect a similar jump from £ 4.99 to £ 5.99 per month.
Apple has not yet confirmed the changes, but new pricing information is currently available at Apple Music website. Students subscribed to Apple Music they also began to record price increases on the subscription pages of their iPhones and iPads. It’s not clear when exactly Apple implemented these changes, but, like 9do5Mac points out, it was probably introduced somewhere between 21 and 23 June – archived Apple Music website shows an old student price of £ 4.99 21.
The Apple Music student plan, which is reserved for those enrolled in college or university, used to be the most affordable package with a lot of features on offer. Prices for individual plans of $ 9.99 per month and family plans of $ 14.99 per month remain unchanged, and the same is true for the voice plan of $ 4.99 per month. While students might view the voice plan as a way to save extra money, he offers more limited access to Apple Music, as you can only manage it via Siri.
The rise in Apple Music prices is not limited to the US, UK and Canada. Last month, Apple has quietly raised the subscription price for students in several countries, including Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Israel and Kenya. It is unclear whether Apple plans to increase costs for students in additional countries, and Apple did not respond immediately The Verge‘s request for comment.
