Apple Increases Pricing for Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple One in Canada by Up to 50%
Apple announced various services are going up in price today, specifically for Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple One. The company confirmed the changes for the U.S. to 9to5Mac.
An Apple spokesperson told the publication, “The subscription prices for Apple Music, Apple TV+, and Apple One will increase beginning today,” adding, “The change to Apple Music is due to an increase in licensing costs, and in turn, artists and songwriters will earn more for the streaming of their music.”
“We also continue to add innovative features that make Apple Music the world’s best listening experience. We introduced Apple TV+ at a very low price because we started with just a few shows and movies. Three years later, Apple TV+ is home to an extensive selection of award-winning and broadly acclaimed series, feature films, documentaries, and kids and family entertainment from the world’s most creative storytellers,” said Apple.
The price changes also apply to Canada, according to Apple’s website. Check them out below according to what we’re seeing:
