Apple Music starts charging for its three-month trial in select markets
Apple has not offered an explanation for its decision to charge for the three-month trial in the three countries. One theory is that the company is simply trying to recover some of the costs of offering the trial. If you recall, Apple originally was not going to pay royalties to artists for music played during the trial period. That led Taylor Swift to pull her 1989 album from Apple Music until Apple decided to change its mind about not paying royalties for tunes played during the trial period.
Apple hasn't said whether this new policy will eventually be rolled out to other markets. It should be noted though, that its top rival in the music streaming industry also offers a three-month discount in the U.S. In the states, first time Spotify members can get three-months of service for a total cost of $9.99. That one-time deal gives new subscribers a savings of $19.98 over the three months.
