As a part of the Back to School season, Apple decided to bring back its Apple Music six-month trial offer to eligible students. For those who’re unaware, the Cupertino-based company generally offers a three-month trial to students. Sometimes, the carriers end up extending the offer to four months as a part of a special promotion.
For the very first time, the iPhone maker extended its trial offer to a massive six-month back in 2019. Well, the brand has now decided to bring back the trial offer to students this Back to School season.
How to avail Apple Music six-month student trial offer
As you might have guessed already, Apple Music makes use of UNiDAYS service to verify whether you are a student or not. You need to get your UNiDAYS account verified by using either the student email address or the student identity card. Once that is done, you can head over to the Apple Music app and avail the six-month free student trial offer.
It is worth noting that this student offer is available for only new Apple Music subscribers. If you have already availed any student trial offer in the past, then you can’t benefit from the ongoing one. With that said, you should definitely still use the student plan which will save you a solid.
Apple Music app is available on both Android and iOS mobile platforms. The six-month trial offer is available through October 31. While Apple is offering a massive trial offer, the same is not true for the rival Spotify. It would be interesting to see whether Apple is able to attract current Spotify student users to its own music streaming platform.
Once the trial period is over, the students will be charged with $4.99 per month until the service is canceled. The trial offer should be available in all the major regions such as the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
