Apple Music Student subscribers get Apple TV+ for free

College students get half off Apple Music and free Apple TV+. That’s tens of millions of songs, always ad-free, along with free Apple TV+. All for just $4.99/month.

Students enrolled in degree-granting universities and colleges can join Apple Music at a discounted monthly rate for up to 48 months. And if you have an Apple Music student subscription, watch Apple Originals with Apple TV+ for free for a limited time.

When you join Apple Music as a student, UNiDAYS, a student validation service, confirms that you’re enrolled in a degree-granting university or college. After UNiDAYS verifies that you’re a student, then you can get a student subscription to Apple Music.

To qualify for an Apple Music student subscription, you must be a student studying a bachelor degree, post-graduate degree, or equivalent Higher Education course at a University, College (U.S. only) or Post-Secondary School (Canada only). Junior, technical colleges, and special courses are also eligible in Japan.

Apple TV+ is available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV 4K, Apple TV HD, Apple TV (3rd generation), iPod touch and Mac. To subscribe to Apple TV+, customers must update to iOS 12.3 or later, tvOS 12.3 or later and macOS Catalina. Apple TV+ is also available on the Apple TV app on all 2018, 2019 and newer Samsung smart TVs and select Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices, and will be coming to LG, Sony and VIZIO platforms in the future. Customers can also subscribe to and watch Apple TV+ using Safari, Chrome, or Firefox web browsers at

  1. Son just started college in the Fall and he’s already set up with  Music. Only downside is I’m unable to share because there’s no student rate for family plans. But I was able to take advantage of 1 year of  TV+ since my wife got a new iPhone last weekend. Doesn’t exactly make up for the fact that she “lost” her old iPhone by setting it on the roof of her car with a wallet case to boot! Hasn’t shown up in Find My so it was either destroyed or the Sim card was removed. Remotely locked and I guess I should just erase at this point. Had to get all new credit cards, debit card and she still needs to replace her driver’s license. Not a good week.

  2. I’ve just got an offer from UNiDAYS with the discount code for Apple Music student subscription. Well, I remember last year I was lucky to have an Apple Music student trial doubled to six months via 9to5Mac. I study mechatronics at The University of Auckland.

  3. Cool. I am a student and I was very pleased with this news. Now I can listen to more music in Apple Music. It especially helps me when I do my written homework, then this lesson does not seem so routine to me. By the way, I recently found a paraphrase service that can paraphrase and make unique any essay I find on the internet. I am planning to use this service for my coursework. Maybe it will be interesting and useful for you too.
