3 month Apple Music free trial

Grab a free three month trial of the brand new Apple Music streaming service. more

Grab a free three month trial of the brand new Apple Music streaming service.

It's currently available for all Apple devices using iOS 8.4, or PCs (through iTunes). They're going to bring out an Android version in the autumn.

We've had a poke around both apps to see what pros and cons Apple Music has over Spotify and what we've found is:

Pros

  • Longer free trial than Spotify.
  • Apple has exclusive rights to Taylor Swift and AC/DC's entire back catalogue, and Pharrell's new track Freedom is also only available on Apple Music.
  • Works with your existing iTunes library, so you can listen to songs that aren't available for streaming without switching apps.
  • Radio (from actual radio stations) has been integrated into Apple Music.
  • Zane Lowe has compiled some playlists for Apple Music.

Cons

  • If you're already a Spotify user then there's no way of transferring over your playlists.
  • There's no free service available, after the trial Apple Music will cost £9.99 a month.
  • No student discount has been announced, Spotify Premium is only £4.99 a month for students through Unidays.
  • If you're into podcasts they're staying separate from your music in Apple's podcasts app, whereas you can listen to podcasts on Spotify.

In conclusion, if you're already paying £9.99 a month for Spotify, there aren't too many differences when you switch over to Apple Music, unless you're the HUGEST Taylor Swift, Pharrell or AC/DC fan. However if you're a free or student Spotify user then it's probably best to stay where you are for long-term savings.

There's no harm in giving the three month trial a go, anyway!
