ICYMI – Apple is now offering student discounts for Apple Music..

After Apple’s very successful launch of Apple Music, it’s music streaming service.. There were a few things that separated it from it’s competitors like Spotify.

First being the much larger library of music especially for music in languages other than English.

The second very big difference was the price, for example – both Spotify and Apple Music offer individual and family subscriptions for $9.99/mo. or $14.99/mo respectively. However Spotify offered it’s service to most college and university students for 50% off at just $4.99/mo. Apple is now matching that price and is also offering Apple Music individual subscriptions for $4.99/mo.

Both services give students access to the entire catalog. The Apple Music student prices is only for one account – no a family subscription. If are already part of a family subscription – remove yourself and then signup for a individual subscription.

NOTE: If you are connected to a family membership and decide to sign up for a student subscriptionship then you’ll end up paying both the family price and the individual price.

The student validation is done though the UNiDAYS service. To find out more about getting a student Apple Music subscriptionship go: here.
