In the streaming media area, Apple Music launched in is a young platform compared to its competitors. With impressive 60 million subscribers all over the world as of June , it has been one of the giants in this industry. For most people, paying for a month's Apple Music subscription cost is not a huge expense. But paying monthly is by no chance affordable.
Part 2. 3-Month Apple Music Free Trial - How to Get
Chance Miller. Over the last week, it appears that Apple has been sending iOS users mass push notifications with Apple Music free trial offers. The notifications seem to target who were at one point an Apple Music user, but canceled their membership or never used the service beyond their initial free trial. Users took to Twitter last night to share screenshots of the various notifications Apple sent regarding Apple Music. Apple touted that users could come back to Apple Music and get 3 months of the service for free. While Apple regularly offers 3-month trials for Apple Music, these notifications in most cases are seemingly offering a second 3-month free trial. Based on the timing of Twitter reports, Apple sent a small batch of notifications to former Apple Music subscribers last week. Yesterday, however, it seems Apple pushed a much larger round of notifications.
Apple Music might be flawed, but we still think it compares favourably to the likes of Spotify and Tidal in some key areas. One of the best bits, though, is the no-strings three-month free trial, which makes the 30 days you get with rival services seem miserly. But it turns out with a cunning workaround, you can actually get six months of Apple Music goodness for nowt. To get your first three months, tap or click the 'trial' button in the iOS Music app or iTunes. Fire up the Individual plan, and you gain access to over 30 million tracks, some really nice playlists, the fab 'For You' view and iffy social network Connect, which appears primarily populated by tumbleweeds, while trying desperately to inch away from the decaying corpse of Ping. Scroll down and tap the 'Manage' button under Subscriptions. Then turn off auto-renewal for Apple Music. Apple Music should be at the top.
Thanks to a creative workaround, originally found by 9to5Mac , you can use a special Shazam promotion to double the length of a typical free trial for Apple Music. To get started, download Shazam for iOS. When it does, it should automatically add the song to your Shazam library. Tap that. Cross your fingers on this part, because your promotion could drop to a meager one month likely for those who have already subscribed to Apple Music at some point, as I did.
