Apple just announced price increases for some of its most popular services. Expect to pay a few bucks more for Apple Music, Apple TV+, and any Apple One bundled with these services.
From what we can see, these prices are increasing for new and existing customers. Corresponding 9to5MacApple said current subscribers would receive notifications of the price increases 30 days before the service renews.
So how much more money do you have to spend? Apple Music increases the price by $1 per month or an additional $2 per month for family plans. That’s $11.99 per month for individuals or $16.99 per month for family. It’s an interesting move considering there are so many competitors available in this space, but Apple says the increase is due to increased licensing costs.
Apple TV+ is also up $2 from $4.99 to $6.99. Or those with an annual Apple TV+ subscription pay $69 per year, up from $20. Then, as mentioned above, those with an Apple One subscription will go up by $2-3 depending on the plan.
For Apple Music, the increase will provide artists and songwriters with additional revenue for their music. Additionally, Apple TV+ gets a bit of a boost considering the service has more content and a growing catalog for users.
While these aren’t the most significant price increases, with competition as fierce as ever, some may want to consider looking elsewhere. These changes are effective today in the United States, so keep an eye out for an email from Apple.
