Eligible students can get six months of free Apple Music for a limited time

If you are a student and you want to use Apple Music at no cost, there’s a limited time trial that will help with that.

As noted today by 9to5Mac, Apple has brought back a six month promotional offer for Apple Music, making it possible for eligible students to get the streaming music service at no cost for half a year. The service usually retails for $9.99 per month, and Apple usually offers a variety of free trial options, but this is definitely one of the longest offerings.

And if it sounds familiar, it’s because Apple offered the same six month free trial promotion last year. It’s part of a back-to-school deal, so the promotion will only be around for a bit of time. Basically, if you’re a student and don’t want to pay for Apple Music for six months, it’s probably worth trying to get the free trial sooner rather than later.

To find out if you’re eligible, Apple will determine your designation as a student through UNiDAYS, so you’ll need to link your Apple Music account with that third-party service. Now, it’s worth noting here that this deal is for new Apple Music subscribers, not existing ones. Existing students using the service can get it for just $4.99 per month.

And of course, if you want Apple TV+ as well, Apple still offers a bundle deal for students including Apple Music and the video streaming service for just $4.99 per month.

This promotion will be available until October 31, 2020.
