This is largely unknown since the general understanding was it is only free for three months. Apple Music is a subscription-based service and can be availed on all iOS run devices and Android devices too. The last one is only for students. The first one is for individual subscription and the second for family. Now Apple is actually running a promotion where you can avail a six-month free subscription of Apple Music before the paid version starts. It is also possible Apple has not taken the pains to separately inform those who have already signed up for a 3-month free subscription. Any new subscriber downloading the app will be offered the 6-month free plan. You have to choose one of the three plans and then you are good to go. You will have to furnish the payment details as in your debit card or credit card number etc.

New and noteworthy.
Apple Music has quietly been running a six-month free trial offer in India. As opposed to its regular three months free trial offer, it is now offering Apple Music with six months free, and on every subscription plan. All three subscription plans come with three months free trial after which the respective charges begin. In India, users can get six months free trial before the paid subscription kicks in. You can find this on the Apple Music app and it will be visible if you're not on an active subscription or your subscription has expired. Tap on the 'For You' section and you will see the six months free banner on top. Tap on it and select which plan you wish to subscribe to - individual, family or student.

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. As one commenter described :. We both went through the same process.
Apple Music already offers a three-month free subscription for new users, but now Apple has announced an interesting Christmas deal. As of today until the end of , you can subscribe to Apple Music without paying anything for the first six months. First spotted by Macworld UK , the campaign comes through the Shazam app, which is also owned by Apple. However, although the app is available worldwide, the deal is only valid in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. Open the Shazam app on your iPhone or iPad. If you have never used the app, you may have to identify a song first by tapping the Shazam icon.
