Apple Music subscribers now have an additional plan added by the company without much fanfare, and it could save quite an amount of money. The new Apple Music plan is priced at $99 for 12 months, and in India, it is priced at Rs 1,200. The plan lets Apple Music subscribers save up to $20 or Rs 240 per year.
Until now, Apple Music subscription offered three plans of $9.99 per month per individual, $14.99 per month for a family plan or multiple users and $4.99 per month for students. These Apple Music plans in India corresponds for Rs 120 per month per individual, Rs 190 per month for a family plan and Rs 60 per month for students.
Reports suggest, most Apple Music users are subscribed to $9.99 per month or Rs 120 per month. The billing for this plan is done on a monthly basis which at the end of 12 months, sums up to $119.99 or Rs 1,440. However, the new plan doesn’t appear along with the usual plans and as TechCrunch notes, it ‘is quite buried as Apple doesn’t want you to know that you can pay less than what you’re actually paying.’
