So you can get 6 free months of Apple Music if you have been given some AirPods

AirPods are Apple’s wireless headphones that have been successful in the markets since their launch. We currently have three models: the standard, the Pro and the Max. Each headset with its advantages and disadvantages but all with cutting-edge technology that provides the best possible sound to users. Apple wants to continue capturing all those AirPods users to join Apple Music, its streaming music service, giving away six free months of Apple Music to all users who buy AirPods, Beats or HomePod. If you are lucky and Santa Claus has left you one of these headphones, we will tell you how to redeem those 6 months free from your device.

First-generation AirPods, Beats Solo3 Wireless, Beats Studio3 Wireless, Beats EP, and Beats Flex are invalid.

Accessing the promotion is as simple as pairing your new headphones

The promotion is automatic when we first pair our headphones with an updated iOS or iPadOS device. In the first moments where we configure the AirPods or the headphones, a window will be displayed notifying us of the promotion: six months free subscription to Apple Music. If at that moment the window does not appear, enter the Music app and go to the “Listen” section at the bottom.

We can access the promotion by clicking on “Redeem now” as long as we take into account that when those six months are over, Apple will charge the subscription of 10.99 euros per month until the subscription is cancelled. Therefore, the recommendation is to accept the promotion and leave a reminder to delete the subscription registered days before the free months expire.
