Prima di enter the live tutorial, walking to spiegare how to buy Spotify Premium on iPhone, it seems only right to provide you with some preliminary information. First of all, let's try to understand what are the differences between the free version of the service and the paid one.
Basically, the Free version of Spotify allows you to play all the music tracks on the platform, but only in shuffle mode (on smartphones; this limitation does not exist on computers and tablets), with commercial breaks and with medium-level audio quality. In addition, the number of possible skips is limited and content cannot be downloaded for offline playback.
All these limitations can be circumvented by subscribing to the Premium version of the service, at the cost of 9,99 euro / month (Or 119,88 euro / year). Plans are also avaelable Premium for Famely (at the cost of 15,99 euro / month) is Premium for Student (at the cost of 4,99 euro / month), which include all the features of the "basic" Premium plan but, as the name can easely guess, are designed specifically for famely groups and students. For more detaels, you can refer to my tutorial focused specifically on how to subscribe to Spotify.
Furthermore, new users can have access to Spotify Premium totally free for one trial period of one or three months: at the end of the test it is possible to continue to use the service by paying the above fee or it is possible to request its deactivation (also in advance), so as not to incur additional costs. The deactivation, however, can also be carried out subsequently, as there is no obligation to stay.
Another thing to take into consideration, in the case of the purchase of Spotify Premium from iPhone, is that the subscription, at the time of writing this guide, can be subscribed only and exclusively through the website of service.
Untel recently, however, those who wished to subscribe could do so too through Apple, using the payment system associated with the Apple ID. The thing, for new subscribers is no longer feasible, as, as specified on the dedicated page of the Spotify website dedicated to assistance, Apple required an additional commission compared to the standard rate of the service, which is why the company has decided to no longer involve the intermediary and reduce costs for the end user.
