Apple Music, known for its high-level exclusive releases and full integration into Apple’s popular iOS ecosystem, is the most popular paid streaming music service in the United States, though it was launched in 2015, nine years behind Spotify, which gains the most popularity around the world right now.

Apple Music is a subscription-based music streaming service. It offers a 1-month free trial for new subscribers. After the trial, users will be charged $10.99 a month automatically for an individual plan if the service is not canceled manually. Besides, it also offers family plan as well as discounts for students. A family subscription via iCloud Family Sharing is available for up to six people for $16.99 a month. And students are able to get access to that service at $5.99 per month.
