How to Get Free Music on iPhone

As technology develops, the way we listen to music has changed, with a trend from digital downloads to streaming music services. For digital downloads, we pay the songs or albums, after which we actually own the music files and can directly transfer them to our devices for offline listening. But for streaming music, we can get unlimited access to a large library with millions of songs of the service we pay for (ad-supported free version or around $10 per month) over the internet, yet we don’t exactly own the music. We’ll lose all access to the songs we used to listen to once we discontinue the subscription.

There are two regular ways to stream music for free on iPhone. One way is to sign up for a streaming music service providing with ad-supported free version, on which we are able to listen to the songs on the platform for free as long as we can bear the ads inserted in while enjoying music. Another way is to make full advantages of the free trial period that some streaming music services offer. What we recommend here is the latter method and below we are going to take the most popular streaming music service in the United States – Apple Music, as an example and show you how to achieve it step by step.
