Published on

Apple Music has increased the subscription price of its student plan in the US, UK and Canada, as first reported by 9to5Mac (through TechCrunch† While it will increase the price from $4.99 to $5.99/month in the US and Canada, student users in the UK can expect a similar jump from £4.99 to £5.99/month.

Apple hasn’t confirmed the changes yet, but the new pricing information is currently available on Apple Music’s webpage. Students subscribed to Apple Music have also started seeing the price increase on the subscription pages of their iPhones and iPads. It’s unclear when exactly Apple made these changes, but if 9to5Mac points out that it probably rolled out sometime between June 21 and 23 – an archived Apple Music webpage shows the old £4.99 student price on the 21st.

Apple Music’s student plan, which is reserved for college or university students, was previously the most affordable, full-featured plan. Pricing for the $9.99 per month individual and $14.99 per month family plans will remain unchanged, as will the $4.99 per month Voice plan. While students may think of the voting plan as a way to save some extra cash, it offers more limited access to Apple Music since you can only control it through Siri.

Apple Music’s price increase isn’t limited to just the US, UK, and Canada. Last month, Apple quietly increased the subscription price for students in several countries, including Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Israel and Kenya. It’s unclear if Apple has plans to increase fees for students in other countries, and Apple didn’t immediately respond The edge‘s request for comment.
