Applications are becoming more expensive during this ongoing inflation. Apple is now informing existing customers that price increases for Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple One will take effect within 30 days. Interestingly, the company also added that customers who are unhappy with the new pricing can cancel their subscription.
- Apple announces steep price hikes for Music, TV+ and One subscribers.
- The proposed increase will be implemented in 30 days.
- Apple says those unhappy with the walkthrough can unsubscribe in the admin section.
A week after the planned walk is announced, the Cupertino company will notify subscribers in the US by email. The affected services are primarily Apple Music, Apple TV+, and Apple One, each of which received different increases.
Cancel or pay: New pricing for Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple One
For example, Apple Music’s personal plan will increase from $9.99 to $10.99 per month. You can still get a cheaper annual plan at $109 compared to renewing monthly. Meanwhile, the family plan starts at $16.99, which is $2 more than before.
Those who subscribe to Apple TV+ will have to pay more. The monthly service is $2 more expensive or equivalent to the new price of $6.99. Similarly, the annual plan is now $69 per year.
On the other hand, the Apple One plan with bundled apps is going to change from $14.95 to $16.95 per month. Apple also said that the Family and Premium plans will start at $22.95 and $32.95 per month—a $3 difference for both.
Apple Music artists to benefit from increased subscription fees
Although the proposed price increase is for customers in the US, it is expected that the services will be rolled out to other countries where they are available. At the same time, Apple’s move may disappoint many users and fans. However, artists and songwriters with tracks on the Apple Music platform will benefit from higher payouts.
