Apple Music’s new student membership includes a 50 percent discount

Apple Music might be getting a complete overhaul next month alongside a fresh marketing blitz, but that’s not stopping Apple from trying to tempt more consumers over to the service in the meantime. Apple is launching an Apple Music student plan today that discounts the subscription service by a massive 50 percent. If you’re part of an eligible college of university then you’ll get to pay $4.99 per month instead of $9.99.

Apple is extending the promotion outside of the US, too. Students in Australia, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, and the UK will also see a 50 percent discount today. If you’re an existing Apple Music subscriber you can simply switch your membership over to the new student option, and new users will be presented with the updated plan during sign up.

Apple’s new student subscriptions come just days after rumors suggested the company is planning to refresh its streaming music service in June. Apple is expected to switch to a black-and-white design, and will reportedly add lyrics into the app. Apple is also said to be making the service more intuitive to use, with better integration of the streaming and download options available. Apple is expected to unveil its new Apple Music changes next month at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference.
