Apple will reportedly extend its Apple TV+ free trial subscription for trial users. All Apple TV+ users whose one-year free trial was going to expire sometime before June, will now instead be able to enjoy free access till July 2021, a new report suggests. The one-year Apple TV+ free trials were offered with new purchases of the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV. All free trials of users who initially subscribed to the service when it launched, were set to expire on November 1, 2020. This deadline was extended to February 2021 last year, and now Apple has further extended it till July.
Due to the pandemic, the delay for this extension could be due to the postponement of the shooting Apple TV+ original — report by 9to5Mac said. The users will be able to enjoy additional nine months of free access to Apple TV+, who have availed this free trial, at the time of launch of the service. Additionally, the new six-month of extension is done by Apple to introduce a new series in its content catalogue and increase the value proposition, before it begins to ask for a fee.
