About Apple Music

Apple Music rivals Spotify in bringing users a huge collection of 100 million songs, together with handpicked playlists and access to podcasts and on-demand radio shows. It’s available on all Apple devices and offers students a generous discount against subscription fees.

Features of Apple Music include:

  • 100 million songs, plus your entire iTunes library
  • Listen online or offline
  • Free trial with no commitment (but make sure you cancel if you don't want to be charged)
  • Stream ad-free music and music videos
  • Download 100,000 songs to your library
  • Access across your devices
  • See what your friends are listening to
  • Original shows, concerts and exclusives
  • Beats 1 live and on-demand radio shows

Student subscribers also get limited-time free access to Apple TV+, which is Apple’s own streaming service, premiering Apple Original TV shows.

It's worth noting that an Apple Music family subscription could prove a cheaper option if you can split the cost with 5 other people - it allows access for up to 6 people (each with their own personal account) for just £16.99. Split between 6 people, this works out less than £2.84 each.

Regardless of which option you choose, you'll always get a free trial so you can try before you subscribe.
