Apple usually charges £9.99 / $9.99 / €9.99 per month for one user or £14.99 / $14.99 / €14.99 for a family up to six people using Family Sharing. With the discounts taken into account, Apple is nearly halving the cost of one months membership bringing the cost down to £4.99 / $4.99 / €4.99. Apple is allowing users to keep that price for up to four years after signing up, whereas Spotiify only allows one year before users have to pay full price.
