Its been so many years that Apple Music hasn’t really raised any prices for the student tier. But now they’ve gone ahead and done it- student pricing is now $1 more expensive than before.
This news might not sit well with some students, who are already paying a pretty penny for their education. But Apple is probably hoping that the extra dollar won’t be too much of a deterrent for those who are interested in signing up for. There is no official announcement yet but people are noticing the price change in UK, US and Canada already.
The new price for Apple Music’s student tier is $4.99/month, which is still cheaper than the standard $9.99/month subscription. But it’s a significant increase from the old price of $3.99/month.
There might be some cancellations based on this or maybe people wouldn’t really care for a $1 extra charge , but this is something to keep an eye on.
