But the service is meant to grasp the entire globe, so everyone including many non-US residents are also keen to know the rates to access the music catalog from the Cupertino.
While we have already covered the pricing of the Apple Music in India and Russia, today we have received some new updates about the pricing of the service in the UK or Europe. Actually, it’s the latest iOS 8.4 beta which is inkling that Apple will offer the service in the UK for same digit with a pond or euro sign: 9.99 month in the UK and €9.99 in Eurozone countries.
Although same number ‘9’ everywhere gives an impression of equal pricing in the UK and US, but one calculates initially that Apple is charging the Britain comparatively more than the fellow service-getters in the US, mainly due to the currency differences: one British pound equals 1.57 US dollars–the Britain will pay.
