Apple is offering a free six-month subscription to Apple Music for students that have yet to subscribe to the streaming music service. The trial, which offers twice the trial usually offered to students, is available in the United States and other countries.
To qualify for an Apple Music student subscription, you must be a student studying a bachelor degree, post-graduate degree, or equivalent Higher Education course at a University, College (U.S. only) or Post-Secondary School (Canada only). Junior, technical colleges, and special courses are also eligible in Japan.
How to get a student subscription to Apple Music
- Open the Apple Music app or iTunes.
- Go to Listen Now or For You.
- Tap or click the trial offer (one trial per person or family).
- Choose Student, then tap or click Verify Eligibility.
- You’ll be taken to the UNiDAYS website where you’ll need to follow the onscreen prompts to verify your enrollment. After UNiDAYS verifies that you’re a student, you’ll be redirected back to the Apple Music app or iTunes.
- Sign in with the Apple ID and password that you use to make purchases. If you don’t have an Apple ID, choose Create New Apple ID, then follow the steps. If you’re not sure if you have an Apple ID, we can help you find out.
- Confirm your billing information and add a valid payment method.
- Tap or click Join.
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 marks just the second time that Apple has offered a six-month trial for Apple Music to students. The last promotion ran back in July 2019.
