Just like last time the trial was extended, Apple is again handing out credits to paying Apple TV+ customers. Customers are being notified in emails being sent out by the company today.
As we first explained on January 15th, the end date of free â€˜yearâ€™ trials that accompanied the purchase of eligible Apple hardware have now been extended until July 2021.
To make it for fair for people who have already transitioned from a trial to a paying subscriber, Apple is giving out $4.99 credits (or the equivalent price for your region) for TV+ service. Credits are available to anyone who was paying for Apple TV+ before the extension was announced, that is January 15th or before.
These $4.99 per month credits are given out to people on Apple TV+ monthly plans and Apple One subscribers. If you currently subscribe on an Apple TV+ annual plan, your end date will have been adjusted to include the extra free months of service.
(Some people have worried that the email from Apple is a scam, particularly as the â€˜Watch Nowâ€™ button links out to a non-Apple domain. However, that is not the case. â€˜geni.usâ€™ is simply a link analytics services Apple uses.)
