Apple is finally ready to give music fans a killer deal on the Apple Music streaming service with an all-new option that lets you pay for a full year’s subscription at a discounted rate.
If you’re currently subscribed to Apple Music, you likely pay either $9.99 per month for an individual plan or $14.99 per month for families. Now that iOS 11 is bringing big changes to the iPhone, Apple has added a new option that gives you a 12-month subscription for just $99.99.
Apple previously allowed music fans to pay for a full year in advance, but the only way to do so was to buy a $100 gift card to Apple Music. Now you can get it without searching for gift cards.
Getting the annual subscription rate isn’t easy though. Apple buried the option deep in its settings menus. Unfortunately, the annual rate is only available for Apple Music users who already have a current subscription, so if you want the $99-per-year rate, you’ll need to sign up at the normal $9.99 tier first and then switch the next month.
Switching to the annual subscription option will save you about 17.5 percent per year, which is great if you plan on being an Apple Music subscriber indefinitely.
To access the $99 subscription rate, follow these steps:
1 – Open the App Store app on your iPhone.
2 – Scroll to the bottom of the Featured tab.
3 – Tap your Apple ID.
4 – Enter your password.
5 – Select View Apple ID.
6 – Tap on the Subscriptions button.
7 – Choose the price option you want.
