Chapter in this post:
Recently, Apple changed its internal billing so that instead of the mandatory monthly Apple Music subscription (for normal mortals 9,99 EUR per month) you can switch to an annual subscription. For the annual subscription, Apple offers a price of 99 EUR, so that you save the costs for about 2 months if you pay annually.
For me that was reason enough to use the annual payment in the future, because I am not a big fan of short billing intervals if I book a service on a permanent basis anyway. And I can't get out of Apple Music because my children constantly want to hear radio plays about the three question marks. ;-)
How to switch to the annual subscription with Apple Music, I have briefly summarized for you here with screenshots and a small explanation. It worked flawlessly for me, so there's no reason why it shouldn't work this way for you too. The only important thing is that I use my Mac. If you want to change it on the iPhone or iPad, it will probably work in a similar way, but certainly with a few small changes.
Here are the screenshots showing the individual steps:
I hope the instructions help you with the changeover with your Apple ID. If you have any problems or additions, please leave them here as a comment!
