Text NEWSPLUS to 150.
Was just flicking through the offers on my EE account and noticed that all pay monthly (phone contract or 12m+ SIM only) existing EE customers can get 6 free months of Apple News+ instead of the standard 1 month trial.
It says on the offer that it applies if you have Apple Music - I can’t confirm whether it works without Apple Music as I use it myself many have now confirmed this should work even if you don't have Apple Music.
Redeems via App Store redemption card.
£9.99 per month after 6 months charged through Apple account - cancel subscription via your Apple ID if you don’t want to continue.
Might be worth it for those like me who like reading newspapers etc.

It’s basically The Times and a pretty sizeable selection of magazines amalgamated into one subscription. Haven’t tried it before today but so far I’m pretty pleased with it. Can’t go wrong with a freebie!
Just don't forget you have the sub and cancel it after 5.5 months. It's bad enough with 3 month trials.

Good shout, but I’m pretty sure with most Apple subscriptions you can cancel pretty much immediately if you want and keep the trial. Nevertheless I always put a reminder in my calendar for all trials if I don’t want to keep them.

The only exception I’ve seen to this was with Apple Arcade where it cancelled everything immediately
Thanks for the heads up, and I don’t have Apple Music and worked for me just have to remember to cancel it
I have 2 EE mobile lines but when I text NEWSPLUS to 150, I don't get a reply. If anyone has a spare code I would be eternally grateful. Voted hot.
Apple News. It's over
Great shout. Works fine. Cancel the sub straight away and then it won’t auto renew in September and fine to use until then.
I can see more offers like this appearing as Apple are trying to push people towards the service. The lay time I looked, hardly anybody was using it
Is anyone with the code able to outline the terms and conditions. I should be eligible but I'm getting a iPhone later this year and wanted to maximize the time.

Does the code have an expiry date or could I grab it now and apply it later this year?
When people say 'this is easy to cancel' do you have to do it via EE as cancelling anything with them is never easy. For example, I subscribe to Apple Music through them, and my subscription doesn't appear anywhere in my Apple account, so I'm presuming I would have to cancel it via EE themselves rather than through Apple.

Read my description - cancel via Apple subscriptions, not EE
I think it’s pay monthly only:(

Read my post - my Apple Music sub doesn't appear in my Apple subscriptions. Why would this be different?

It took mine about half an hour to appear in my subscriptions with Apple.

Thanks, I’ve updated the description. Sorry!
Somehow a bit cold for me.
Last time I checked BBC news was free
Maybe I'm missing something here

Fair enough, up to you
Worked fine. I haven’t got Apple Music either. Cheers

Eternally grateful! Bit strong isn’t it!
You cancel it straight away, just go onto subscriptions in the App Store, it’ll stop it from auto renewing
Worked for me, thanks!!(y)
Worked for me and I’d subscribed already for a month. Not worth £9.99 per month but it is pretty good. Free is great though. Thanks.
I’m just getting “Cannot Connect” when I’m redirected to the redeem page.

Might be worth it to someone. Depends what you already spend on papers and magazines, but some will see the value of this.

Me too.
I’ve sent the link from my wife’s phone (who’s on EE) to mine on O2. I had a subscription but just cancelled it and tried again, still the same message. :/

Oh I have no doubt. Most of the magazines aren’t to my taste. If they add some more that I like then it’d be worth it. I paid for a month so I had some reading material on holiday. Worked brilliantly on the plane.

Does this work with people who have samsung phones
Doesn’t work for EE business accounts

Got a text confirmation back from 150, but clicking the link sends me to Apple News app saying “cannot connect”.
Yup, just get not working when pressing link
For anyone getting the “Cannot Connect” error on their phone - I opened up the link on my laptop and it worked.

Give it a go and I hope that works for you too. 🏻

Nope. Gave it up as a bad job.
