Apple has announced that starting today (November 29th) in Canada, and else where, they will be offering a student membership for Apple Music. Now students who are enrolled in an eligible college or university can receive a (50%) discount on their Apple Music membership for up to four years. That’s only $4.99 CAD a month! Dang, that is literally one Grande Latte.
This is not a bad move for Apple, as they attempt to get the younger generation to sign up to the program. $5 is better than $10 and as close to free as is economically feasible while still being able to turn a profit. But will this be enough? Well Apple Music’s strong point is exclusives, and they get them all, and of course the Beats 1 radio station. That alone is worth $5 a month.
