School may no longer be in session, but Apple Music has a bit of bad news for its student subscribers. According to multiple reports, the music streaming service is planning to increase its monthly fee for students across the globe. Instead of paying a fee of $4.99 per month, students will now pay $5.99 to hear their favorite songs and albums. This increase isn’t limited to students in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada either. Student subscribers in Australia, New Zealand, Kenya and several other countries will also pay a heightened subscription fee.
Fortunately, Apple Music will be limiting its heightened subscription fees to students. The streaming platform’s standard subscription plans will remain at the same price for the time being. Individual subscriptions are set at $9.99 per month while family subscriptions are set at $14.99 per month. At this time, there are no plans to up the monthly price for regular subscribers.
