In addition to the monthly plan, Apple has also reduced prices of its student and family plans, and also its yearly plan. Students can now subscribe to Apple Music for a monthly price of Rs 49 as opposed to the previous Rs 60 plan. Apple Music monthly family subscription plan has been dropped from Rs 190 to Rs 149.

As for the yearly subscription plan it is now available at Rs 999. Apple would earlier offer Apple Music at a yearly price of Rs 1,200. Apple’s new subscription plans for Apple Music are currently live for users in India.

The new subscription plans for Apple Music notably comes after the entry of two major international players in India.

Shortly after, YouTube Music made its debut in India. Like Apple Music now, YouTube also offers a monthly subscription plan at Rs 99.
