Apple Music already offers a three-month free subscription for new users, but now Apple has announced an interesting Christmas deal. As of today until the end of , you can subscribe to Apple Music without paying anything for the first six months. First spotted by Macworld UK , the campaign comes through the Shazam app, which is also owned by Apple. However, although the app is available worldwide, the deal is only valid in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. Open the Shazam app on your iPhone or iPad. If you have never used the app, you may have to identify a song first by tapping the Shazam icon.

Thanks to a creative workaround, originally found by 9to5Mac , you can use a special Shazam promotion to double the length of a typical free trial for Apple Music. To get started, download Shazam for iOS. When it does, it should automatically add the song to your Shazam library. Tap that. Cross your fingers on this part, because your promotion could drop to a meager one month likely for those who have already subscribed to Apple Music at some point, as I did. As one commenter described :.
To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. Why have I been charged for all the songs downloaded after joining the 3 month free trial? How do I get a refund? Posted on Jun 20, PM. If you subscribed to Apple Music for the free trial, then songs downloaded from there would not have a price, and would not be charged. To get songs from the subscription service you need to use the "For You" and "Browse" sections in the Music App on iOS or the same sections in the iTunes application on a computer. If you used the iTunes Store App on iOS or the Store section in iTunes on a computer, then you are outside of the subscription service, and choosing to outright buy the songs which in turn means they are charged to you. Songs downloaded through the subscription service will stop playing and be removed if the subscription is ever cancelled or expires. Songs bought outright do not depend on the status of the subscription can continue to played indefinitely. Posted on Jun 21, PM.
For whatever reason, if you want to cancel your Apple Music subscription, here is all you need to know. You should know that there is no need to wait till the day before the next billing day to cancel Apple Music. You can just cancel Apple Music Subscription now and you can still access it until the next billing date. That is to say, if you get Apple Music trial, you can cancel it now and still be able to enjoy Apple Music for 3 months free.
