Apple Music Offering Six-Month Free Trial to Students Until End of April

Apple has announced that students who have yet to subscribe to Apple Music can now get a six-month free trial – double the standard three months offered to students – in the United States and select other countries.

apple music student offer feb 2021
Apple says the promotion is open to students in the United States studying for a bachelor degree, post-graduate degree, or an equivalent Higher Education course at a University or College. Eligibility in Canada extends to Post-Secondary School students, and in Japan to junior, technical colleges, and special courses.

Students must verify their eligibility by confirming your student status through UNiDAYS. The limited time promotion ends April 30, 2021. When the trial ends, the ‌Apple Music‌ plan for students is $4.99 per month, compared to the standard $9.99 per month for individuals.


This is only the second time Apple has offered students a limited time six-month promotion offer for ‌Apple Music‌. The last one arrived in July 2019. This latest one was first spotted by a Twitter user and subsequently reported by The 8-Bit.

I will insist on what I said in other thread:

What Apple should do is to return to origins. I mean, I felt in love with Apple thanks to the iPod, the originals, the classic ones. It was so simple to play all our music there that actually is the device that vamped the way of Apple to relaunch the company and lead to it’s current success (obviously they took a step by step way). Now is really sad that Apple Music is almost forgotten by Apple. So I truly think they should reengineer the Music App from zero, respecting all aspects that made iPod great and one of the most iconic devices for our generation, at least as a way to honour all customers that have been with Apple since then, supporting Apple to become what today is.

Paid for Apple Music for a year, didn’t renew. Still prefer Google Play Music, now YouTube Music over Apple Music.

One of my biggest peeves with Apple Music was the inability to see tracks/songs that I have liked/loved/given a thumbs up. Just let me listen to songs I have recently liked, for God sake. YouTube Music creates an auto-playlist of my liked songs. Apple being passive-aggressive and not letting me see a list of songs I liked.? People aren’t stupid, you know—I see what you’re trying to do, Apple.

Google’s algorithms also play more similar music to songs I like through the “radio” feature. Apple Music is definitely an inferior product, in my opinion.

I've always hopped through Music, Spotify and Tidal trial offers, never paid a cent for streaming music.

I even use the Christmas return period as an excuse to have an iPad for 2 months every year, does this mean I'm going to hell?
Sounds like fraud to me
