In the U.S., it looks as though for now that Apple Music is going to stay at $4.99 a month. Students also get access to content from Apple TV+ with a student subscription.
Apple Music starts at $4.99 a month with the Apple Music Voice plan which only allows the user to use Apple Music through Siri. Outside of that, Apple Music costs $9.99 a month without the student discount and the user would also get to control it via an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or Mac with their subscription.
However, neither the Apple Music Voice or regular Apple Music plans include Apple TV+. Apple’s streaming service is an additional cost of $4.99 a month after a one-week free trial.
