Most customers are aware of some free trial for apple music, but not many know there are several different flavors to this trial. Apple music is an amazing service which lets you have your music with you all the time, and the regular price is $9.99. Now let’s have a look on all the trial periods one is entitled to with this services

This is the standard 3 months free trial Apple is offering on their website and most of the subscribers are using the 3 months trial. For one whole Quarter, you can use Apple Music services for free, have your music on you all the times and not pay anything.

During this campaign, the students had a chance to enjoy actually 6 months long free trial to apple music at no extra cost. This campaing was running until September 26th and we think it will be back again next year for another back to school season.
