Verizon says it has now included Apple Music on its smartphone lines with Play More or Get More Unlimited. Users who subscribe to Verizon Unlimited plan will get an Apple Music 6-month free subscription.

To get Apple Music free for 6 months, you must remain on a qualified Verizon Unlimited plan and then you can activate the free trial on Apple Music.

If you haven't signed up for Apple Music, you'll have to create an Apple account and subscribe to Apple Music. If you already have an Apple Music subscription, you'll need to cancel the duplicate subscription after you activate the new one via Verizon.

To activate Apple Music subscription on Verizon:

1. Visit vzw.com/applemusic on your desktop or mobile browser, or "Add-ons" in the My Verizon app under "Account."

2. Select the lines you want to enroll in Apple Music and accept the Terms and Conditions.

4. Once your subscription is activated, you can manage or cancel your subscription through vzw.com/applemusic or in the "Add-ons" section of the My Verizon app under "Account."

Get Apple Music 6 Months Free Trial from Individual and Family Plan

Normally, Apple Music offers 3 months free trial for every new subscriber and once the trial is over, users will have to pay for a plan among Student, Individual or Family.

But there's a trick to get you another 3 months of free trial. Since the Apple Music Family plan allows up to 6 people to share under one subscription, users can share an extra 3-month free trial by accepting the Family plan invitation. You can ask a friend or family member who has never used Apple Music before to subscribe Apple Music Family plan and invite you into the plan, then you can enjoy the same 3-month free trial.

To start a Family plan:

On iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch:

Bottom Line

After the Apple Music 6 months free trial, you'll be asked to pay for a plan to continue the subscription. If you can't afford it or you simply don't want to subscribe to Apple Music anymore, you can cancel the subscription. But all songs you listened to or downloaded during the free trial will be unavailable. If you still want to listen to those songs after canceling the subscription, you can download Apple Music songs during the free trial with the TunesKit Apple Music Converter. And then you can listen to those songs without Apple Music subscription with any type of media player.
