Get up to six months of free Apple Music with some new CarPlay vehicles

Apple carplay

Apple has teamed up with Volkswagen and Fiat Chrysler to offer any new buyers of certain CarPay vehicles up to six months of free Apple Music.

This deal starts in May and ends in April 2019 and it only applies to first-time Apple Music subscribers. However, if you have already benefitted from the standard three month trial period for Apple Music, you will only receive an extra three months of free service. It is only first-time Apple Music subscribers who will benefit from the complete deal.

Apple is partnering Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in the U.S and Volkswagen in Europe to give new buyers of select models the ultimate driving experience. The Volkswagen deal only applies to specific vehicles and not to the group’s other holdings such as Audi, Porsche, SEAT and more.

In February, The Verge predicted that Apple Music would have more subscribers than Spotify by Summer, however, currently Spotify is still in the lead. Some even think Apple Music only has half the number of paying subscribers than Spotify. This latest promotion is another way for Apple Music to offer their subscribers more. However, while CarPlay is featured in many new vehicles, this deal is only available to those looking to buy selected Chrysler or Volkswagen vehicles.
