Premier customers pay $33 per month, rather than $30. You can see now the full breakdown of the new pricing tiers at Apple's website.

In a statement, Apple said the Apple Music price changes are "due to an increase in licensing costs, and in turn, artists and songwriters will earn more". The company also explained that Apple TV+ debuted three years ago at "a very low price" because it started with "just a few shows and movies". Apple has since grown the service and won the best picture award at the Oscars this year for the movie CODA.
