Apple's music streaming platform has been gradually gaining the user base to better rival the market leaders. In its attempts, the company offers three months of free Apple Music service when you sign up for it. However, it seems the generosity might be reduced in the time to come. Currently, Apple offers a three-month trial period for regular users and a six-month trial period for students. This might be about to change. Let's dive in to see some more details on the Apple Music subscription and what changes can we expect.
Apple Music's Trial Period Might Be Reduced To One-Month
As we have previously mentioned, Apple might reduce its free trial time duration from the regular period to one-month. According to a new banner on Apple's website, the trial period might be reduced to one-month, down from three or six depending on the individuals opting it as a regular or student-based subscription.
At this stage, we're not sure if it's a mistake or if Apple is really looking to reduce the free Apple Music trial time frame. Do take note that once you click on the banner, it will direct you to the subscription page, where the three-month time-frame is still mentioned. The three-month time period is listed on the company's website, so no final conclusions can be made at this point.
Since Apple is liable to pay royalties on all songs to the artists, the cost-saving attempts do make sense. In addition, the one-month time period for testing the service is more than enough to make a decision whether you need to opt it or not. Still, it's not clear whether the company is looking to make the change or not. The company has replaced the banner with a new one, which only states 'trial' and no time frame is listed. The final decision rests with Apple and more will be detailed later as soon as the news arrives.
There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more. This is all for now, folks. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
