Apple Music Student Plans in Canada See Price Increase
Apple has just increased the prices of the Apple Music student plan in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K., following last month’s price revision in South Africa, India, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, and Israel (via 9to5Mac).
Apple Music student plans subscribers in Canada are now being charged CAD $5.99, up from the previous CAD $4.99. Similarly, the plan now costs $5.99 in the U.S. whereas it was previously available for $4.99 per month. In the UK, the price for the Apple Music student plan has been increased from £4.99 to £5.99.
A version of the Apple Music webpage archived on June 21 still shows the old prices in the US, Canada, and UK website, which suggests that Apple has raised prices for the Apple Music student plan in the last 48 hours. Apple is yet to confirm the price increases with a statement.
Apple uses UniDAYS to verify eligibility for student memberships, which checks your ongoing eligibility periodically. Student memberships are available for a maximum of 48 months.
Meanwhile, pricing for the Apple Music individual plan has not changed and continued to cost CAD $9.99 per month in Canada. The family plan for up to six people also costs the same CAD $14.99 per month.
