Apple has sent out emails to subscribers of Apple TV+ explaining they will continue to receive refund credits on their account until June, after the company extended the free trials for the video service for a second time.
On January 15, Apple increased the length of time its one-year free trial of Apple TV+ with a second extension, enabling it to run from February until July. The change allowed anyone who started the free trial between November 2019 and June 2020 to receive up to five extra months of service for free.
As some users had switched over to paying the subscription, the first extension in November saw Apple provide refund credits to qualifying subscribers between November 2020 and January 2021. With the second extension, Apple has confirmed it is doing the same thing again.
Emails sent out to subscribers are advising monthly credits of $4.99 or a local equivalent will be applied to Apple IDs for accounts that are actively paying for Apple TV. The credit will be automatically applied each month the subscriber is charged from February until June, and will be usable as standard App Store credit against purchases and subscriptions.
The credits will apply regardless of whether the subscriber is paying annually or on a month-to-month basis, and will also be provided to those who are paying for it via the Apple One bundle.
