Apple Music has 13 million subscribers, and the service is slated to pick up a major update later this year. In a bid to attract more subscribers, Apple is offering a 50% discount to students, making the service available for $4.99 per month.

The promotion is valid in Australia, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, U.K., and the U.S. As the monthly price varies outside the U.S., students in these regions will be able to get a 50% discount on the regular subscription price. Even if you're an existing subscriber, you can switch to the new membership provided you're enrolled in an eligible college or university.

You'll be able to take advantage of the student membership for a maximum duration of four years, and you also have the option of taking a break in between and re-joining the discounted plan. According to TechCrunch, Apple's partnering with UNiDAYS to authenticate student enrollment.

The student membership is set to roll out shortly, so if you don't see the option yet, we suggest trying after some time. And if you need some help getting started with a student subscription, Apple has a handy step-by-step guide to help you along the way.
