Apple Music

Apple Music student membership is being launched in 80+ new markets by the end of the month, the iPhone maker has announced.

According to Apple the Apple Music student membership is being made available in 82 additional markets by February 26 of which 79 are already live now. The expansion brings student memberships to nearly all the markets Apple Music is available in.

The student memberships are verified by UNiDAYS, a student verification technology provider. Students will have to be enrolled in an eligible college or university. The plan will be valid for up to four years, with the option to include study breaks in between.

Other countries where Apple Music student memberships are now available include Israel, Malaysia, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal and Taiwan among others. The streaming service is now available in 115 countries, with over 36 million subscribers. Apple Music is claimed to offer a catalogue of 45 million songs.

India got the student membership offering back in November 2016, a few months after the membership’s launch in seven countries in May that year. Apple Music made its way to India alongside its global launch with iOS 9 in 2015.

In India, the Apple Music student membership is priced at Rs. 60 per month, whereas an individual (non-student) membership is priced at Rs. 120 per month, and a family membership for up to six people is priced at Rs. 190 per month. The Apple Music subscription prices in India are the lowest Apple offers globally.
