Apparently, Apple added an annual Apple Music subscription plan months ago for $99. While that did manage to slip under the radar for many, but today we'll show you how you can subscribe to it.
Get a Year of Apple Music for Just $99 - Save $20 Every Year
Apple offers three plans (which everyone knows of) for subscribing to Apple Music. One is the obvious Individual plan for $9.99 a month. Second is the Family plan for $14.99 a month. Third, is the Student plan for $4.99 a month. If you want an year's worth of Apple Music in one go, then you need to grab yourself a $99 Apple Music gift card from Apple in order to do so. However, it has come to light that Apple has added the $99 option straight to the Apple Music subscription section in the App Store. This means that you can get a year worth of Apple Music straight from your device without having to buy an Apple Music gift card at all.
Accessing this option is fairly simple actually. Launch the App Store, scroll all the way down and tap on your Apple ID. Then click on View Apple ID, select Subscriptions, Apple Music Membership and then the $99 Individual plan for a year.
Interestingly, Apple says that this plan has been around for a few good months now. But only now it has come into the radar properly. And quite frankly, I believe it's a great addition to the list of available plan options. For $99 you get a year's worth of Apple Music, and in the end you end up saving $20. It's not a bad deal at all, provided you make do with Apple's service for all your music related needs.
Given the might and money Apple has invested into its music streaming service, there's no doubt that we will constantly see a bunch of improvements down the road. Take iOS 11 as an example, which adds a little bit of social flavor to proceedings, allowing users to see what others are listening to. Of course, you have the option to turn off this feature completely, but it's a nice way to discover new songs and artists.
Let's just hope it doesn't end up seeing the same fate as Ping.
