1. Apple Music free trial individual + family

Apple Music offers 3-month free trial in 3 plans: students, individual and family. You can only choose one plan to start your free trial. Once your 3-month trial expires, you can't experience it again. Then how to get 6-month free trial? The key is the difference between Apple Music's Individual and Family Sharing plans. For the first 3 months, start Apple Music free trial as student or induvidual. After that expires, set up Family Sharing and invites your family members to join. Ask one member to start a Apple Music family free trial, then you can enjoy another 3-month free trial as a family memnber.

You can invite family members to join your Family on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or on an Android device.
