Two years ago, Apple entered the music streaming service race by announcing Apple Music to compete with the likes of Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music, and even Amazon Music Unlimited. The service was able to gain good market share in a short time, thanks to competitive pricing and availability in almost all major countries. So far, Apple has offered 3 subscription plans for Apple Music: Individual, Family and Student Monthly plans priced at Rs 120, 180 and 60 respectively. However, Apple has quietly introduced a new annual subscription option for the Individual plan priced at Rs. 1200, which is much less than what you would pay if you subscribed to the Individual plan monthly. However, the annual subscription option is not directly accessible as it is embedded in your iTunes subscription settings. So if you’re interested in taking advantage of this plan, let’s take a look How to save Rs. 240 on your Apple Music subscription:
Buying an Apple Music Annual Subscription
First of all, make sure you subscribe to one of the monthly plans Apple Music offers before moving on to the next steps. If so, follow these steps:
note: If you’re new to Apple Music, you should see the new annual plan when signing up for the service.
- go Settings on your iOS device and enter “iTunes and App Store” settings. Now tap on your Apple ID located at the top of the menu and then tap on it. “View Apple ID”.
- When done, tap on “Subscriptions” Tap on account page and here. “Apple Music Membership” to take the last step.
- Here you will notice that a new Individual annual subscription plan is listed outside of the current monthly plans. If you want to subscribe to this new plan and earn some money, tap on it. “Individual (1 Year)” and authorize the purchase using Touch ID or Apple ID password.
That’s pretty much all you need to do to subscribe to Apple’s latest annual plan for Apple Music.

More Value with Apple Music Annual Subscription Plan
If you have already subscribed to the Individual monthly plan for Rs 120 per month and enjoyed using Apple Music, you can upgrade to the annual plan and save a significant amount of cash especially if you can pay the entire amount upfront. However, if you’re short on cash or don’t think you’re going to keep using Apple Music all year, a monthly subscription would be a better option.
So, are you planning on upgrading to the annual plan and subscribing to Apple Music for a year or will you just stick with the current monthly plans? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a few words in the comments section below.
