Apple Music Free Trial is Really Free

Apple Music Free Trial is Really Free

When you start Apple Music up you will see an offer for a free trial. When you choose the free trial you will still need to choose a plan of $9.99 or a family plan of $14.99. This is not something you will need to pay immediately, nor will you need to pay for the trial later. This is the plan that will automatically go live when your trial is up.

Many users report that you need a credit card linked to your account to start the free trial. If you run into this you will need to add a credit card or debit card to the account to make this work.

During the first three-months of use you will not be charged for Apple Music even though you choose a plan that lists a price. You get full access to the Apple Music service during the trial, including all the radio stations, albums, library syncing and more.
