- Apple is extending the free year trial of Apple TV+ for at least some subscribers.
- The company is alerting subscribers of the extended trial by email.
- It appears that the extension is for another three months of service.
If you signed up for the free year trial of Apple TV+, you may be getting another three months of free service. Apple has begun emailing subscribers to the free year trial, informing them that the company is extending its trial.
I personally signed up for the free year of Apple TV+ when it debuted last November and received an email today that my trial would be extended to February of 2021. As an even better bonus, it does not appear that subscribers need to do anything - Apple is updating the renewal date automatically.

One iMore reader also reported getting three months of Apple TV+ for free, even though the didn't sign up for the free year of service.
Apple debuted Apple TV+ on November 1, 2019, offering a free year of service to those who purchased select Apple devices. For many, their free trial would be coming to an end this month but, with this latest promotion, it appears that we all may be getting a few more months to enjoy Ted Lasso for free.
