Apple Music and Amazon Prime increase the price of their subscriptions

The commotion generated today by the increase in the Amazon Prime fee has been preceded by a second surprise, Apple has also decided to increase the price of Apple Music for students as a prelude to what is to come.

Apple Music for students costs 5,99 euros, while Amazon increases the price of Prime to 49,90 euros per year. In this way the technology companies are responding to galloping inflation and the increase in production costs, what will be next?

Despite the fact that Spotify, leader in the streaming music sector (and not for that reason profitable...) continues to run the show, Apple is already making changes to its monthly subscription service, in this case the version for students of Apple Music that It has had a significant price increase. By "remarkable" we are not referring to the fact that one euro has risen, but to the fact that this euro now accounts for 20% of the total price, therefore, in proportional terms, the rise is quite marked.

That said, it contrasts quite a bit with Amazon Prime, which has announced a rise from 36 euros to 49,90 euros, which will mean almost 40% of the total price of the service. However, Amazon Prime offers a series of features or added values ​​that are very far from those offered by other services dedicated solely to streaming specific content.

Be that as it may, Apple Music for students now costs 5,99 euros, one euro more than its previous price. Meanwhile, the cost of standard Apple Music remains at 9,99 euros and is unchanged for the moment. Given the price escalation of all companies, these prices will most likely increase, so it is a good time to buy prepaid cards.

    A long time ago, more than two months ago, it already appeared to a family member that after the 6-month period it would cost €5,99.
    It is not something of now.
    It also seems incredible to me that they dare to raise the student fee , those who pay the most attention to expenses and are financially dependent .
