All free Apple TV+ subscribers will receive extended access at no cost until the end of July

It’s not the first time Apple extending the free period for the Apple TV+ trials 

When Apple TV+ was launched in Nov 2019, Apple offered a one-year free trial to anyone who purchased a new Apple device (iPhone, Mac, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV) in or after September 2019.

Those free trials were set to expire in November 2020. However, in October last year, Apple announced that it was extending its Apple TV+ free trials through January 2021, pushing the first wave of its streaming service free trial renewals out to Feb 2021. 

Now, with the second round of extensions, it appears all free Apple TV+ subscribers will receive extended access at no cost until the end of July. 

According to 9to5Mac, customers paying for Apple TV+ service will be credited $4.99 for each month, from February to June. Due to that, paying subscribers won’t be unfairly affected by the Apple TV+ free trials provided to other users.
