As we learned from Apple's quarterly report, the business of turnover services is now comparable to Fortune 70 companies. So far, Apple's plan will offset the drop in iPhone sales, largely as a result of rising digital service revenue. To keep the momentum going and make services a major driver of business growth, Apple has previously launched a paid subscription service, Apple News +, Apple Card Virtual Credit Card, Apple Arcade Gaming Service "And" Apple TV + Online Cinema ". Obviously, it's the last two that Apple makes the main bet.
Not only did Apple Arcade and Apple TV + get a very competitive price (in both cases, the subscription costs just $ 5 a month), so the company also gives TV + free annual subscriptions to all new device buyers. It is now known that Apple's generosity is not exhausted, and Apple TV + subscription will be included as a bonus in the student subscription to Apple Music streaming service without changing the cost of the latter. That is, the preferential-rate student plan (in Ukraine – $ 2.5 a month) will include an Apple TV + subscription, which costs $ 5 a month separately.
In a comment to The Verge, an Apple spokesman confirmed that the offer would be valid for some time, but did not give exact dates. So it's not clear whether the free user will end before the end of the year or sometime in the future, when the price of an Apple TV + subscription will inevitably increase. But the fact that in the future Apple TV + will rise in price now is practically no doubt.
However, for Apple, known for its greed, this is a very unexpected act. Potentially, this will allow Apple to hunt for more Apple TV + users and reach the target of 500 million paid subscribers for all services next year.
You can only get one Apple Music student subscription per person, and in this case, you need to confirm your student status through the UNiDAYS website.
Apple TV + will launch on November 1 in more than 100 countries, offering many original content, including the series "For Sake of All Mankind" by Joel Keenan, "Watch" by Asoneyson Momoa, The Banker Drama by Samuel Ackexon, Anthony Mackie and Nicholas Holt, and the morning show with Ennifer Aniston, Steve Carl and Reese Witherspoon.
