Apple‘s streaming services include Apple TV+ and Apple Music, and students can access both under a single subscription. Apple typically offers special deals and promotions catered to students, given that their budget doesn’t always align with Apple’s price model. For example, the company has annual back to school offers and education discounts on select Macs and iPads. Apple even includes free accessories like AirPods and Apple Pencil with purchases, plus additional discounts on accessories and AppleCare+.
For most people, Apple TV+ and Apple Music will be sold as separate subscriptions, with their own respective monthly fees attached. Apple TV+ is $6.99 monthly, while an Apple Music Individual plan costs $10.99 per month. But for students, Apple TV+ is free with an active Apple Music Student subscription. To make the deal even better, the Apple Music Student plan is just $5.99, which is 50 percent off an individual subscription. The offer is available to students studying for a bachelor degree, post-graduate degree, or an equivalent course at a university or college.
Get The Apple TV Student Discount
To subscribe to an Apple Music Student plan, users must verify their student eligibility through UNiDAYS, a third-party website. The discounted subscription can only be used for 48 months — a typical four-year undergraduate degree period — and must be verified yearly. Once the four-year period is up – or if the subscriber is no longer is a student – their subscription will be changed to an Apple Music Individual plan, and free access to Apple TV+ will no longer be available.
To subscribe to Apple Music Student, open the Apple Music app or iTunes. Tap ‘Listen Now‘ or ‘For You.’ Select the trial offer and tap ‘Student.’ Tap ‘Verify Eligibility,’ which will redirect to the UNiDAYS website where the user will need to verify their enrollment. After verification is complete, the user will be redirected back to Apple Music or iTunes. Next, sign in with an Apple ID or create a new one. Confirm the billing information, add a payment method, and tap ‘Join.’
Once the subscription is live, users can start listening to Apple Music and open the Apple TV app to start streaming. The Apple TV+ access allows students to watch Apple Original movies and TV shows on the platform, but is tied to that Apple ID. Student offers do not work with Family Sharing and can only be accessed through the student’s account.
While regular subscribers don’t get access to this discount, they can get both Apple Music and Apple TV+ under a single monthly fee by subscribing to Apple One. This gives users access to iCloud+, Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple News, Apple Arcade, and Apple Fitness+. Prices start at $16.95 per month, but vary based on the type of plan. It’s cheaper than the cost of Apple TV+ and Apple Music, but provides more value and access to all Apple‘s services.
