The cost of some of Apple’s subscription services, including Apple Music and Apple TV+, has increased globally. Fortunately, users in India won’t have to spend any more than they do now. Apple claims that the revisions were required as a result of rising licence costs and the growth of its content libraries as a whole. The company claims that artists and content creators can expect to earn more per stream as a result of this change.
Apple Music will continue to be available in India for ₹99 per month for single users and ₹149 for a family of up to six people. If you can provide the appropriate ID, the Student tier is ₹59 per month. MEanwhile, the Voice-Only plan, which only allows you to stream music and curated radio stations via Siri voice commands, costs ₹49 per month. Previously costing $9.99 a month (₹850 approx.), the single user subscription in the US now costs $10.99 ( arounds ₹950). On the other hand, the monthly cost of the family plan has increased from $14.99 to $16.99.
The monthly pricing of Apple TV+ is still ₹99 in India. However, it is now $6.99 (₹599 approx.), up from $4.99 (₹450 approx.) in the US. Students who qualify for the discounted Apple Music subscription will also receive free access to Apple TV+. Apple is still giving new iPad, iPhone, and MacBook owners three months of free Apple TV+ subscription.

It’s not as if Apple didn’t raise its prices in India at all. The iPhone maker raised the price of the Apple Music student membership plan from its prior monthly fee of ₹49 per month to the current ₹59 per month back in May this year. While the company has reduced the cost of its family and individual plans back in 2019. However, it may be too early to make any judgments about this, and given the depreciating value of the rupee, a price increase may possibly occur in the near future.
