Apple Music coming to select Verizon Unlimited plans at no extra cost
UPDATE: Verizon has officially confirmed that starting January 17 its Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited data plans will include Apple Music subscriptions at no extra cost to consumers. The original story continues below:

Verizon’s Unlimited customers have had access to a six-month free Apple Music trial for quite some time now. But according to a new report by 9To5Mac, free Apple Music will soon become a permanent addition for some.

Specifically, it seems both existing and new customers on the $50 Beyond Unlimited and $60 Above Unlimited plans will soon receive an Apple Music subscription, which is valued at $9.99 per month, bundled in for free.

Customers that are currently on the $40 Go Unlimited plan will unfortunately still have to make do with a six-month free trial for Apple Music or continue paying their current subscription to the streaming service. Considering the updated Beyond Unlimited plan costs just $10 more, though, it may be worth upgrading.

After all, in addition to Apple Music, the Beyond Unlimited plan offers 22GB of full-speed 4G LTE data without throttling, HD-quality video streaming (720p) rather than 480p streaming and 15GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot data.

According to the report, Verizon will announce the update to its plans by this coming Thursday, January 17. The integrated Apple Music subscription will be available to both Android and iOS users.
