Now, you can get Apple News+ free (not in India)Last updated on Dec 01, 2019, 04:37 pm
Apple's News+ is often hailed as the Netflix for news, thanks to its humongous assortment of publications and the tempting $10/month price tag.
The service comes with a free one-month trial for new users. But now, as part of a limited-time Black Friday offer, the Cupertino giant is upping that access to three months for free.
Here's how you can get it.
Sign up for News+ this weekend, get three-month trial
As part of the deal, people signing up for News+ during Black Friday weekend, meaning before December 2, will be eligible to get an extended three-month trial of the service from Apple.
This would give you enough time to try different publications, magazines included in the package and see if it is a worthy deal at $10/month or not.
Offer only for users in America and Canada
The offer in question will only be applicable to people subscribing News+ in the US and Canada.
"This weekend only, get a 3 month free trial of Apple News+ and enjoy full access to hundreds of magazines and leading newspapers," Apple's note says on the App Store.
Also, do note that once the trial ends, Apple will automatically renew and start charging the fee.
Apple News+ offers 300 magazines, newspapers at one place
Apple News+ offers access to a bundle of 300 digital magazines, including GQ, Esquire, National Geographic, and Vogue, and paid news subscriptions at a single place.
When the extended trial offer ends, you will be eligible for the regular one-month trial.
However, if you are interested in taking a News+ plan, you could go for a six-member family sharing plan to save more money.
Hopefully, this will boost adoption of News+
The latest offer appears one of the many moves Apple is planning to boost the adoption of its services business.
Back in March, News+ got off to a rocky start when the Apple News app crashed after an update.
The company still claims to have raked in over 200,000 subscribers, but many reports indicate that it has struggled to build on that number.
