Apple is on a full roll on expanding its Apple services. They have launched a bunch of subscription services in the last couple of years. One such subscription service that Apple started is the Apple TV+ subscription. The Apple TV+ subscription costs $4.99 a month. But, not to worry, Apple also gives free trial option to try and see if it’s worth your money.
However the regular trial of Apple TV+ subscription is of mere seven days, but Apple offers a one-year free trial for the streaming service with the purchase of an eligible Apple device. If you already have an Apple TV+ subscription and is going to expire somewhere around June or before that, you will be able to extend it a bit further till July. This isn’t the first time Apple has extended the free trial of Apple TV+ subscription, as Apple earlier extended the free trial to February 2021, for those who’s trial was expiring in October 2020.
Eligible products for one year Apple TV+ free trial
The free one year Apple TV+ trial will come bundled with the following products. If you purchase a new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, or Mac computer. After purchasing the device and unboxing it, you will see a code to start the free trial of Apple TV+ subscription, however, the validity of the code is only three months, so if you fail to redeem the code within the three months of purchasing your Apple product, you won’t be able to get the free trial. Also, if you cancel the subscription at any point during the free trial, you cannot start the free trial again. You will have to start paying the Apple TV+ subscription price which is $4.99 a month.
To enjoy the Apple TV+ subscription, you don’t need to buy the Apple TV box or any other Apple product, there are several devices that are compatible with the Apple TV+ app, on which you can log in with your Apple ID and use the service, similar to what we don on Netflix and other OTT services.
