Apple TV Plus was released on 1 November. In addition to what was previously said at the event, Apple TV Plus will be free for a year if you buy a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod Touch or Mac. Students who subscribe to Apple Music can also watch Apple TV Plus for free! Here’s how to get started with a one-year free trial of Apple TV Plus.
First of all, you need an eligible device. Apple devices purchased after September 10, 2019, such as an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod Touch or Mac, includes a one-year free trial of Apple TV Plus. Whether it is purchased from Apple or an authorized seller, whether it’s a new device or a refurbished device, it is eligible to receive the offer.
Second, you’ll need to start the one-year free trial within 3 months after purchasing and activating the new device. If you bought a new device between September 10 and November 1, the three-month period will start on November 1. If you bought a device after the release of Apple TV Plus, the 3-month period will start when the device is activated.
How to get the one-year free trial
- Log in to your Apple ID on your newly purchased Apple device.
- Check if your device is running the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, or macOS. If not, update to the latest version.
- Run the Apple TV app.
- Then, you will receive the prompt to start with the one-year free trial. If not, you should open the Apple TV Plus channel page to get the offer.
- Click on “ Enjoy 1 Year Free”.
- No matter how many new devices are purchased after September 10, 2019, one family group can only get a one-year free trial of Apple TV Plus.
- At the end of the one-year trial period, apple will immediately charge you $4.99 per month and continue to charge you the monthly fee unless you cancel the subscription at least one day before it expires.
- If you cancel the trial during the one-year trial period, you will immediately lose the free access to Apple TV Plus. All the family members that you share this free trial with will not be able to access Apple TV Plus for free. What’s worse, you can’t reactivate the one-year free trial of Apple TV Plus.
