Shortly after reaching the 13 million active user milestone less than ten months in, and amid growing speculation of an imminent redesign, Apple Music rolls out a new type of membership destined to give Spotify a run for its money.
In fact, this is an exact replica of the arch-rival’s student discount inaugurated back in 2014. While premium Apple Music access typically costs $10 a month on a single license, college and university-goers can knock 50 percent off their expenses for up to four years.
Don’t forget your first three months are completely free of charge too, and you can get the app on Windows PCs, OS X systems, iOS devices, Android phones and tablets, plus the Apple Watch.
There’s also the family option, where you pay $15 every 30 days instead of $10 or $5 and up to six people on six different devices are allowed to stream the service’s massive audio library, with 24-hour Internet radio covered as well.
Back to the student offer, we should point out it’s up for grabs in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Australia, and New Zealand in addition to the US. Prices obviously vary from country to country, but the savings remain the same cool 50 percent across the board.
