Know about Apple Music's Three-Month Free Trial

We all know that since mid-2015, Apple Music has offered a three-month free trial for every new user. After the implementation of this policy, Apple Music attracted a large number of users, and many of these attracted users have been using Apple Music to listen to music until now. Thanks to this preferential policy, Apple continues to attract new users to try out Apple music every year, and we have to say that this is a very smart and successful decision.

During the three-month trial period, you will be able to enjoy the same services as Apple Music subscribers enjoy. You can access the full Apple Music library, recommendations and radio stations or download Apple Music tracks to your iTunes-matched device. However, after three months, if you want to continue listening to the Apple Music tracks you downloaded without any subscriptions, it is impossible, even the tracks are downloaded. These downloaded tracks are usually M4P files, and they are all encrypted by Apple Music. When your free trial expires and you don't want to pay for any Apple Music subscription, you will lose access to Apple Music library, recommendations and radio stations and those downloaded tracks will disappear from your iTunes library.

Apple Music Free Trial

If you really have some favorite tracks and you want to keep listening to them on Apple Music, you also have two options to help you continue enjoying them after the three-month free trial. The first method is to purchase the tracks you want on iTunes Store directly so that you can really own the tracks and be able to enjoy them on different devices, but here comes another problem, not every track on Apple Music can be found on iTunes Store. Another key fact to remember, buying all the tracks you like could cost a lot of money. The second method is not that expensive relatively, you can simply pay for an Apple Music subscription. Apple Music provides several kinds of subscription plans for users, which are $9.99 for a 1-month individual subscription, $14.99 for a 1-month family subscription and a 1-year individual subscription costs $99.

We believe that you will not only use Apple Music to listen to your favorite tracks for two or three months. Yet, if you only need to experience Apple Music during the 3-month free trial period, do not forget to cancel your Apple Music subscription using the device on which you start your free trial or another device, as long as you're signed in with the same Apple ID. However, most people will choose to subscribe to Apple Music all the time, and may even continue to subscribe for several years. The cost incurred during this period can be imagined. We are afraid this is exactly the opposite of what many users originally chose to use Apple Music free trial. Accordingly, do we have anything that can help us to keep our favorite Apple Music tracks after the three-month free trial period? Fortunately, we do have a way to achieve this. Now it is time to introduce a good helper to our music enjoyment: TuneKeep Audio Converter.
