It was only a matter of time, the price of the student subscription to Apple Music is now revised upwards by the Cupertino company. The package thus goes from €4.99 to €5.99 in France, but also in Belgium. In Switzerland, the rate goes from 6.50 to CHF 7.50. Apple had increased the price of the student subscription in several countries last month.
A petty gesture from Apple
The formula for students is therefore increasing again in some countries. After South Africa, Australia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, Israel and Kenya, it’s the turn of young people French, Belgian, Swiss and even Japanese to pay more, as spotted by our colleague iGen. The consequent increase since we are talking about a 20% increase.
Apple may hammer at each conference that it offers more affordable prices so that students have access to its products such as the Mac for example, but the American manufacturer does not hesitate to scratch 1 euro when it can.
What do you think of this increase? The competitors are all lined up at €4.99, except Deezer, which asks for an extra euro. It must be admitted that the Apple One formula is more interesting at €14.95 for a family with Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade.
