Apple today revised the subscription prices of its services, including Apple TV+, Apple Music and Apple One bundles. Taking effect starting today, an Apple spokesperson cited several reasons for the price hike, including increasing licensing costs and more. 

In Malaysia, an Apple Music subscription is now priced at RM16.90/month for individuals, which is an RM2 increase from its previous price of RM14.90/month. As for the student subscription option, it is now priced at RM8.90 and the Apple Music Family subscription plan is now RM25.90/month. 



Meanwhile, Apple One also saw price increases for all subscription tiers. For the individual plan, it is now priced at RM29.90/month, which is an RM10 increase from the previous price of RM19.90/month. Moreover, the Family plan is now RM39.90/month (RM6 increase) and the Premier subscription tier is now priced at RM78.90/month (RM9 increase). 

Finally, as for Apple TV+, it is now priced at RM29.90/month. Here is the statement by an Apple spokesperson  to TechCrunch regarding the price hikes:

“The subscription prices for Apple Music, Apple TV+, and Apple One will increase beginning today. The change to Apple Music is due to an increase in licensing costs, and in turn, artists and songwriters will earn more for the streaming of their music. We also continue to add innovative features that make Apple Music the world’s best listening experience. We introduced Apple TV+ at a very low price because we started with just a few shows and movies. Three years later, Apple TV+ is home to an extensive selection of award-winning and broadly acclaimed series, feature films, documentaries, and kids and family entertainment from the world’s most creative storytellers.”
