The Apple Music free trial lets you test-drive the platform for 3 months

With a vast library of tunes and some appealing features, Apple Music is a worthy competitor to Spotify.

Apple Music allows you to stream 50 million songs ad-free, follow your favourite artists, create playlists and download songs to enjoy offline. Not only that, but you can also follow your friends to see what they're listening to, discover new songs thanks to well-curated playlists and access exclusive content not available anywhere else. It's just one of the many services currently competing for real estate over your earholes.

Note: Memberships renew automatically after the trial, so you need to remember to cancel yours beforehand if you're not enjoying the service, or you will be charged.

What does the Apple Music free trial offer?

Apple Music comes with a free three-month trial so you can test-drive the platform for a lengthy period of time before opening your wallet.

During the free trial, you can enjoy all of Apple Music's features. The list includes the ability to stream ad-free music and music videos, listen across all of your devices and download up to 100,000 songs to your device to listen to offline.

Users also get access to original shows, concerts and exclusives, as well as the Internet radio station Beats 1's live and on-demand radio shows. Plus, you can find playlists to suit your mood at the tap of a button and can easily get access to your favourite artists' albums and songs.
