If you are still subscribed to Apple’s “Voice Plan” for Music, enjoy it now, as you will no longer be able to renew it. That’s because the company has discontinued the offer, which, despite being cheaper than the regular Apple Music plan, has tons of disadvantages.
Currently, users reported that those subscribed to the plan can still use the service. However, different details hint that Apple will soon completely eliminate the plan. As pointed out by 9To5Mac, it found a code in iOS 17.1 suggesting the killing of the offer. MacMagazine, on the other hand, pointed out that the Apple Music Voice Plan page on Apple’s website is no longer accessible, directing visitors to the actual Apple Music page.
With the things mentioned above, it is expected to affect all subscribers of the plan from all markets where it used to be offered: Australia, Austria, Canada, China mainland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Apple still hasn’t confirmed the matter or the reason behind it. Yet, the move is likely encouraged by the problematic experience of users with the plan, which probably resulted in a low number of subscriptions (although there is no exact figure to clarify that). To recall, the plan can only be accessed through Siri. Aside from that, it lacks several features, making it repulsive despite being significantly cheaper than the regular $10.99/month subscription and $16.99 Apple Music Family Tier. With this, it should not be a surprise why the company has come up with the decision.
