    So, as long as you are premium you can use your spotify worldwide online or offline without any limits.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Back to topic: I never subscribed to Apple Music. in fact, I did not even sign up for the free trial. I refrained from it due to the horror stories of early adopters who lost carefully-curated personally-owned tracks after syncing their music collections and testing the service out. When I did try to go online and play some tracks that were not on my device, the music kept cutting off which was extremely annoying. Those issues are probably non-existent and no longer applicable now. But first impressions do last in my case, so I just subscribed to Spotify Premium instead.

    I have a question, can I subscribe in Apple Music PH and then switch back to my AppStore using my US Account?

    Unfortunately, no. You need to stick to the country where your subscription was made.

    Just a heads-up to students, Apple Music Student Subscription can now be availed by students of several Philippines education institutions. If you're a student, it's worth checking with UNiDAYS if your institution is included in the program and, if it is, you can avail Apple's special discounted plan.

    Alternatively, you can login your Apple ID and access your complete list of subscriptions, Apple Music should be included there. Edit your subscription and the option for student pricing should be present. It will also redirect you to UNiDAYS.

    I believe it's supposed to be 50 percent off the standard pricing of ₱129. The discount isn't as dramatic compared to other regions where subscription costs ~$10 but, well, it's still something meguess.

    So I tried AM again as I would love to use Siri for music especially when I'm driving. Encountered a problem though, my playlists wont show up on the library on my phone :( it's working fine on my iPad Pro though. I tried messing around with it some more and the playlists show-up when I download songs but when its done downloading the playlists disappear again. Has anyone encountered this? I'm using an iPhone X

    Tried that as well sir.... did a reboot via settings, via vol down + power button and via hard reboot. Still didnt fix the issue.... starting to think that the only way to get this fixed is via a clean re-install. Hassle :(

    You may try restarting your ipad too. This may resolve the "resyncing" issue. It's really hassle to clean install so you might consider other options first before trying the last resort :sneaky:

    Have you tried doing it on a different Wifi network or if you were using your data, vice versa? Sometimes the culprit is our own internet connection has some services blocked and we blame it on the service itself. This happens on the App Store on different network conditions so I'd just want you to rule that out.

    ^ I usually have that issue when switching between my US and PH iTunes store accts. i would suggest you log out from Apple Music on Settings > iTunes & App Store. Wait for a while, maybe 30 mins. Or an hour to be sure. You can also reboot your phone for good measure.

    And then log back in by putting your credentials, again, in Settings.
