Back To School: Apple Music’s Free Trial Period Doubled To Six Months For Students
Apple has already kicked off its annual Back to School promotion and as part of that, it has also confirmed that students will be able to take advantage of an extended Apple Music trial.
Often an Apple Music trial gets you three months of free service, but if you’re a student, you’ll receive double that amount of time right now. That means that Apple Music is now available to students for free for a whole six months.
Once the trial ends, students will automatically be added to the Apple Music student plan, which costs $4.99 per month. That’s already a discount on the normal price for everyone else.
In order to be able to take advance of this trial, you need to be a student with an active email address. You will also need to verify your identity via UNiDAYS. Unfortunately, this trial is also only available to new customers, so if you’ve had an Apple Music trial or subscription in the past, you’re out of luck. You can, of course, still take advantage of that discounted $4.99 per month price regardless.
This new trial offer comes alongside reduced pricing for the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro that arrived alongside slight refreshes for both models. Apple also ditched the 12-inch MacBook during the same refresh, too.
A new rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro is also said to be in the works, although a release date for that appears to still be up in the air.
