Apple Music is getting a major overhaul at this years Worldwide Developer Conference, the company will announce a new version of their streaming service in June and it is expected to be rolled out with iOS 10 in September.
Apple recently announced that their music service had 13 million paid subscribers, the company is looking to boost their numbers and one way of doing this is offering a new student discount.
Apple will offer students a discount of 50% off the price of their music streaming service, in the US a single subscription to Apple Music costs $9.99 and students will be offered it at $4.99.
The discount is also headed to a number of other countries, this includes the UK, Australia, Germany, New Zealand, Ireland and Denmark, all of these countries will get a 50% discount for eligible student.
In the UK Apple charges £9.99 a month for a monthly subscription to their music service, student will be able to get this for £4.99.
In order to qualify students need to be enrolled in college or university and the discount will be available for four years from when they sign up to the service.
This could give Apple’s music streaming service a significant boost as the lower monthly cost will appeal to many students as they will have access to tons of music for half the price of buying an album.
