For its part, Apple hasn't commented on the change and whether other fees will be assessed on people trying out Apple Music in other countries. As reported in the Apple blogosphere, the music streaming service has begun flexing its "prices vary" prerogative by charging 99 cents for a three-month trial in Australia, Spain and Switzerland. Cupertino continued to offer this free trial service until date but now seems to be monetising the same as well. It had planned to avoid royalty payments to artists during its free trials, - something it reversed after Taylor Swift took umbrage with it. AppleInsider speculates that the company may now be trying to recover some of those costs with paid trial periods. Apple Music trials were previously free in each country, as they are in the U.S. and other countries.

It would be "foolish to accept" the United Nations court's jurisdiction in the case of Indian spy, the resolution states. The government will wait to see Pakistan's decision. "It is a victory for India and a big blow for Pakistan".

It's unclear at this point if Apple plans to introduce a similar pricing change in other countries, dropping the free trial in favor of three months for $0.99. Apple hasn't said whether this new policy will eventually be rolled out to other markets. That one-time deal gives new subscribers a savings of $19.98 over the three months. It should be noted though, that its top rival in the music streaming industry also offers a three-month discount in the U.S. In the states, first time Spotify members can get three-months of service for a total cost of $9.99.
