Apple discontinues its Siri-only Apple Music Voice Plan

Apple has seemingly discontinued its most affordable Apple Music Voice Plan today as the company has scrubbed and removed all mentions of this plan across its website. The development was first spotted by MacMagazine.

The Voice Plan was the most affordable tier to access and use Apple Music, priced at just $4.99 in the United States. With this tier, users could play music through Siri voice commands only, with no access to the visual user interface on the Music app and elsewhere unlike the standard Apple Music tier. In addition, other features were absent from the Voice Plan, including Spatial Audio, Apple Music Sing, Family Sharing, lossless streaming, and offline downloads.

In a new support document, Apple has confirmed that existing Voice Plan customers will still have access to the service till the end of their current and final billing cycle. Those on a free trial of the Voice Plan will still have access for their first billing cycle, after which the service will be discontinued for good. New subscriptions to the Voice Plan are no longer possible.

Apple first announced the now-discontinued plan at its October 2021 event alongside the HomePod mini, third-generation AirPods, and redesigned MacBook Pro with M1 Pro and M1 Max. Apple Music Voice Plan launched to consumers in December 2021 alongside iOS 15.2 in many regions including the US, Canada, China, Ireland, Mexico, Spain, and the UK.

Affiliate links are a popular way for websites to make money, but they can also be annoying to readers. They can obstruct content, trick visitors, and even be scams.

Supercharged is committed to respecting your time, sanity, and convenience. That’s why we’re doing affiliate linking differently.

You Control What You See

Have you ever felt like you're bombarded with affiliate links and ads constantly? We understand how overwhelming that can be, which is why we want to give you some control with the option to expand the affiliate options that you find interesting.

We're Strict

We have a strict policy of showing you a maximum of five brands or products at once. It's simple: if we wouldn't buy it ourselves, we won't recommend it to you.

No Tracking or Creepy Cookies

For all of our affiliates, we work directly with the companies to offer discounts and deals for you. We do not use third-party affiliate managers, trackers, or platforms like Amazon, so you can be confident that you won't have to deal with tracking.
