Apple Music Expands Song Catalogue, New Trial Offer

Apple Music Australia

Apple Music, Apple’s music streaming service now has more songs than ever before. Plus, Apple is again offering the first 3-months, completely free. The news comes as Apple is preparing to launch HomePod, their first wireless speaker, which integrates with Apple Music.

45-million songs

While revealing further information on HomePod, I noticed the catalogue of songs available on Apple Music has increased. All of which are ad-free.

45-million songs can now be streamed or downloaded for offline. This is an increase from the previous 40 million songs. New and previous music is, of course, added all the time. Lately though, Apple Music added British rock band Def Leppard —best known for songs like “Rock of Ages” and “Pour Some Sugar on Me”.

New Trial

Apple appears to again be offering the first 3-months of Apple Music – free. A new banner on their website now reads “45 million songs. Try 3-months on us”.

When Apple launched Apple Music the first 3-months were free. That ends when last year, Apple begin charging 99 cents. While 99 cents is hardly much at all, it is good to see the free trial return. How long for? That remains unclear, but what is clear, the offer is only for new members.

After the trial period, the subscription automatically renews to a monthly membership for A$11.99/month. Apple does offer student pricing and 2-months free a year when you purchase an annual membership. Information on Apple Music pricing and offers in Australia can be viewed here.
