The price changes first spotted by Michael Burkhardt on Twitter (via 9to5Mac), increase the ‌Apple Music‌ Student Plan from $ 4.99 to $ 5.99 per. month in the US and Canada and from £ 4.99 to £ 5.99 in the UK. The changes reduced what was previously a 50 percent discount on the monthly $ 9.99 and £ 9.99 monthly costs to just 40 percent.

Archived web pages indicate that the change occurred within the last 48 hours. Last month, Apple raised the price of the Apple Music Student Plan in a number of countries, including Australia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Indonesia, Israel and Kenya. Apple informed affected subscribers via email in these countries, but it does not appear to have informed customers about the latest price change in the US, UK and Canada.
