How to Switch Between Apple Music Individual and Family Plans

Apple has four subscription plans for Apple Music. They are individual monthly plan ($9.99), individual annual plan ($99), a family plan that includes up to 6 family members ($14.99 per month), and a student plan ($4.99 per month). Now, if you are on any one of the above plans, you can easily change and move to a different plan. For example, you can cancel the individual plan and join a family plan. Or, if you are in a family plan, you may move out of it and switch to an individual plan. You may even switch in and out of a Sub-membership plan. So, let us dig right in…
