India and Russia Will Get Apple Music For $2 Per Month
As most of you might know already, Apple won’t be providing its music service free of charge.
After a three-month free trial, the US nationals will have to pay $9.99 per month to use the Apple Music. The cost will not be the same, however, everywhere.
The sign-up menu for Apple Music, that the firm has issued to developers and beta testers on iOS 8.4 beta 4, suggests that the subscription package of the streaming music service will differ on regional basis.
Apple may offer its newly launched music service for as little as $2 to $3 to nationals of India and Russia. The charges, when converted in the local currencies, are pretty nominal.
The subscription fees, for an instance, in India is just over 100 rupees. In this amount, one can’t probably get monthly subscription of a good local daily. Similarly, Russians will get 169 rubles per month (~$3 USD). The pricing has been probably finalized by considering the rates of rivals such as Rdio, Guvera and Gaana, who charge relatively low in these regions.
The low costs for India and US have been reported by Technology Personalized and a Russian tech blog TJournal. Both the sources have shared screen-shots of the sign up menu. Beyond the screen-shots, nothing has been detailed.
Apple announced Apple Music during the keynote of its developers conference 2015. The Cupertino announced a live global radio station and social platform for artists to connect with fans as well.
