Apple has slightly hiked the subscription fee for Apple Music for college students in several countries. The Cupertino firm is emailing affected students, informing them of the price hike.
The price change is not widespread and, according to a MacRumors article, will impact Apple Music student subscribers in but not limited to Australia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Indonesia, Israel, and Kenya.
“Thank you for subscribing to Apple Music. We wanted to let you know about an upcoming change to this subscription,” reads an email from Apple to Apple Music student subscribers. “Apple is raising the price of this subscription from USD 1.49 per month to USD 1.99 per month,” an email from Apple read to a customer in South Africa.
