Apple gives away iphone 11
Apple has been heavily promoting its slate of original content over the past couple of weeks because it really wants people to subscribe to Apple TV+. But on a recent episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the company took things to another level with a massive giveaway.

To make sure the hundreds of people in Ellen’s audience can access Apple TV+ when it launches later this week, Apple teamed up with The Morning Show star Jennifer Aniston, who was promoting the company’s service, to give everybody a free iPhone 11 and a one-year trial of Apple TV+.

Apple doesn’t often do giveaways, especially not ones where iPhones are involved, but it did pull a similar move earlier this month when fellow The Morning Show star Reese Witherspoon visited Ellen and it gave every member of the audience a free Apple TV paired with a one-year trial of its Netflix competitor.

Apple TV+ is scheduled to go live on November 1st and will be available to everybody as part of a seven-day free trial. Once this is over, the service will cost $4.99 per month which means it’ll significantly undercut Disney+ ($6.99/month), Netflix ($7.99/month), and even Hulu’s ad-supported Basic plan ($5.99/month).

As was confirmed when the service’s pricing and release date was announced in September, all new iPhone, Mac, iPad, and Apple TV purchases now come with a one-year free trial of Apple TV+.
