Apple, the Cupertino-based music streaming service provider, does not allow free, ad-supported plan unlike rival Spotify on Apple Music. But fret not mate, as by using the workaround method we're reflecting on, you can avail one-month free trial in some countries before signing up for the service. 

Moreover, if you have not yet subscribed to Apple Music, you can avail promotion that has been available as part of Shazam app for years, which enables you to get three months free of unlimited access to Apple Music. 

According to Gadgets 360, these steps were tested on an iPhone running on iOS 17 and a free two months trial that ends on April 14. Whereas, you should be able to access up to three months promotion on an older version of Apple’s smartphone operating system.

It’s worth highlighting that Shazam’s webpage clearly suggests that the promotion will expire on March 31, however, can still be availed to get three months free through an alternative method wherein you need to scan the QR code on Apple’s website. 

In addition to it, you will be charged a monthly fee of INR 99 after the free trials ends, so that you can cancel your subscription as soon as possible and continue to access Apple Music for the rest of the trial period.
