How to Get Free Apple Music for Existing/New Users

Apple Music provides over 100 million songs from various genres, along with curated playlists, Beats 1 Radio, and exclusive content. Because of the deep integration with Apple's ecosystem, including iOS devices, Mac computers, Apple Watch, and HomePod, it could be one of the most popular streaming services for Apple fans. But unlike other competitors with free tiers, it's a based-subscription service.

Under this circumstance, many existing and new users are looking for a way to get free Apple Music to access its full music library and features. So, today, we have collected the 12 workarounds to get Apple Music free, which covers a way to get Apple Music for free forever.

Part 1. Is Apple Music Free

No. Many streaming music services offer a free tier with occasional ads. However, Apple Music never has such an option. You can subscribe to the Apple Music premium plan from 3 options.

The Apple Music Individual Plan costs $10.99/month and gives you access to all the features of Apple Music, including ad-free streaming, offline downloads, access to exclusive content, and more. The Apple Music Family Plan ($16.99/month) lets up to six family members share a subscription. Each member has their own personal account, and all members can enjoy the full functionality of Apple Music. There is also a Apple Music Student Plan (costs $5.99/month) that offers discounted subscription rates to qualifying students.

Price $10.99 $16.99 $5.99

Is There Apple Music Free Trial?

Yes. Apple Music typically provides all new subscribers from any country a free trial period for all premium plans. The length of the free trial can vary, but it's usually around one month to three months for new users who sign up for the service.

And, Apple Music cooperates with many third-party companies to offer Apple Music free trials for 2 months, 3 months, 4 months, 5 months, and 6 months. Besides, you can find free Apple Music codes for existing users on some coupon and discount websites to redeem them.

Part 2. How to Get Apple Music for Free Forever for Existing Users

All Apple Music free subscriptions have a limited time restriction. After the trial period ends, the subscription will automatically renew unless canceled by the user. Once you cancel the Apple Music free trials, you will no longer be able to play songs in your library, including songs you've downloaded. So, it's better to know how to get Apple Music free forever instead of just trying free trial Apple Music for a few months.

DRmare Apple Music Converter is the best tool you can use for existing and new Apple Music users. It allows you to download and convert Apple Music to MP3 and other commonly used files. The downloaded Apple Music MP3 files are yours and can be saved and played on any device. So even if you cancel your Apple Music subscription, you can still access these Apple Music songs.
