Apple News+ Offering Extended Three-Month Free Trial Through Monday

First-time subscribers to Apple News+ can receive an extended three-month free trial of the service from today through Monday in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the UK, the four countries where News+ is currently available.

Apple typically offers a one-month trial to News+, so this offer triples the length of free access. The extended trial can be initiated on the Apple News website in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the UK. After the trial period, Apple News+ automatically renews at its standard pricing, such as $9.99 per month in the United States.

Apple News+ is a subscription-based service in the Apple News app that lets you access hundreds of magazines and paywalled content from some news sites. The service launched in March 2019 following Apple's acquisition of Texture.

Apple announced the offer in a tweet spotted by the blog Apple Terminal.

They could offer a free year and I'm not biting. I still see the one year of ATV+ for when I bought my iPad Pro and I'm not doing that either. I wish this subscription craze would end.

I seem to be the only person I know that actually likes Apple News+, but then it has the magazines I would normally buy and it's cheaper so a no-brainer.

Who pays for news in 2020?
I’ll happily pay for good news. News+ is a magazine service though with a bit of news sprinkled in.

I’d like to delete Apple News+ from my M1 mini but can’t.
I need the SSD space.
