Our complete guide to the best Apple Music deals available right now is a fool-proof way to listen to all your favourite tunes, as well as curated playlists and radio stations, without breaking the bank.


Since its launch in 2015, Apple Music has been Apple's answer to other music streaming services, like Spotify. Working seamlessly with other Apple products, Apple Music can be accessed via Siri, where you can ask it to be play songs according to your mood: 'Hey Siri, play something relaxing', for example, or in a particular genre.

Apple Music has tunes from thousands of artists, as well as exclusive content in the form of its own radio stations: Apple Music 1, Apple Music Country and Apple Music Hits.

Apple Music normally costs £10.99 a month, but there are a number of ways to lower the cost, and even to get up to six months for free. Firstly, it all depends about which plan you are selecting: Apple Music Voice costs just £4.99 a month and allows you to access Apple Music through Siri when connected to Wi-Fi. You could also go for the Apple Music Family Plan, which costs £16.99 per month but allows up to six people to listen, each with an individual music library and personalised music recommendations.

There's also Apple One, which gives you access to a number of the different subscription services including Apple Music, Apple TV+ and Apple Fitness+ and more. You can now get a one month Apple One free trial.
