Apple TV+ officially launched on November 1, and anyone who purchased an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, or Mac after September 10 can get a year's subscription to it for free.

1 year free apple tv plus sub
The free one-year trial can be activated in the ‌Apple TV‌ app at launch on any qualifying Apple device. However, we've heard reports that some ‌iPhone‌ 11 owners aren't seeing the trial they're entitled to in the TV app.

If the trial isn't showing up for you on your device, here's a solution that appears to be working for many people.

apple tv official website
Open a desktop web browser, go to https://tv.apple.com and log in using your Apple ID credentials. You should be able to accept the 1-year free trial offer from there. Then on your ‌iPhone‌, sign out of the TV app, close it, then launch the app and sign in again.

Your one-year free ‌Apple TV+‌ trial should hopefully now be active.

1-Year Subscription to Apple TV+ Offers Savings

Also today, Apple quietly added a one-year plan to its subscription options for the video streaming service.

subscriptions
A one-year ‌Apple TV+‌ subscription offers a $9.89 annual saving over the $4.99 monthly plan (around a 15 percent discount). Users can select it without affecting their free one year trial by going to the Account section of the TV app: Manage Subscriptions -> Apple TV+.

You don't have to wait for 11 month and cancel right now, you will be able to use all year. Cancel now so you don't forget.
This is really bad advice.

That's unlike all subscriptions work, strange.
Seems not the case for me. Is that because I’m not on family subscription?

They should bundle an Apple TV+ subscription (maybe 6 months?) with accessories too, like the new AirPods pro.

I’m good for iPhones, iPads, and Macs right now.

I’m curious how this works with multiple purchases within a 12 month period.

Let’s say (these are hypothetical but likely purchases I’ll make) I buy an iPad Air in December, and get the 12 months free, and then say in March i buy my wife a new iPad Pro (or whatever month they come out) - does that then add a year? Is it just “free for 12 months after any (applicable) hardware purchase?

Yeah my question is, how long do we have until we can’t redeem the free year. Logically I would just wait as long as possible before activating my boyfriend’s free trial.

UPDATE: Ignore my advise, Apple TV+ subscription works in a different way.
