Here's how to get the $99 Apple Music annual subscription plan Apple doesn't want you knowing about

Apparently, Apple doesn't really want you to know this, but it's hidden in plain sight, so here it goes! If you purchase a monthly Apple Music subscription for $10, or are an existing subscriber, you will be able to pay $99.00 for a 12-month subscription and save some cash. Counter- intuitively to the maximum, the option is buried within the App Store app, rather than the Music app.

Head there and go to the 'Featured' tab. Tap your Apple ID, enter your password, and tap 'View Apple ID'. Then tap 'Subscriptions' and finally, there you have it – a 12-month Apple Music membership for $99.00! You'll save about $20 per 12 months, which isn't super much in the grand scheme of things, but it's still less than what an uneducated user will end up paying.

Of course, one could also procure a $99 Apple Music gift card to get a full year of access, but heading to the App Store on your phone or tablet is much more convenient. Enjoy the music!

What about if it was about Google Play Music or Spotify? That wouldn't be because it's not Apple.

Only an uneducated user would subscribe to Apple Music in the first place.

I literally cringed when I read your comment. How does subscribing to Apple Music have any bearing on one's education?

If you don't like Apple, don't buy their products. WOW the guys is just trying to save some people a couple of bucks. It sounds like you hate Apple because you can't afford them.. Ha ha ha I jest, kind of. Note: because uneducated idiots are the one buying Apple products and when they sell it, they make more back than any other comparable device. It's an investment. We don't care for gimmicks! I apologize if I hurt anyone's feeling.

"which isn't super much in the grand scheme of things," At least "Super fun" "super cool" and "super amazing" are grammatically correct.

There's more money in the bottom of the market. But more competition too.

That's the thing. Apple dominates the premium end and Android dominates the lower end.

Apple should bundle 3 months of free Apple Music into every homepod purchase.

This is as clear a paid infomercial as it can get. Please clarify when a post is an advertisement, if not for anything else, to maintain the slightest level of integrity on everything else you post on your site.
