If you have an iPhone and have never used Apple Music before, you can access the streaming service for free for five months. The offer is thanks to a collaboration between Apple, music discovery service Shazam and country music icon Dolly Parton. The deal was announced during a Super Bowl LV ad on Sunday and runs until the end of March.
Over the weekend, Dolly advertised the offer on her Twitter after the big NFL game. The 9 to 5 singer wrote, “@Shazam # 5to9 during tonight’s #SuperBowl to unlock a special surprise! If you’re a new subscriber, you can also get up to 5 months of @AppleMusic for free.”
To take advantage of the offer, all you have to do is download Shazam and open it on your iOS device.
The deal is available in dozen of countries including the UK. Membership is automatically renewed after the trial period ends.

While the offer is only available to new Apple Music customers, reports have reportedly still offered a free trial to those who have already used the service.
Instead of five months of free access, however, it is two months.
Promotional codes for this offer expire on March 31, 2021.
Apple usually offers new Apple Music customers three months of free access. Hence, this latest giveaway is the best deal yet.
In other news, the next big iOS update for iPhones could bring a big change to Apple Music.
At the moment, if you ask Siri to play a track, it will try to play the track through Apple Music.
As reported by What HiFi, with the beta version of iOS 14.5, users can change Siri’s settings to go to a different streaming service by default.
For example, if you want Siri to play a Kings of Leon song on Spotify, you no longer have to say, “Hey Siri, are you playing King of the Rodeo by Kings of Leon on Spotify”.
You can just say, “Hey Siri, are you playing King of the Rodeo from Kings of Leon”.
With the beta version of iOS 14.5, iPhone users can choose from a number of streaming services like Deezer and YouTube Music as the default Siri option.
The iOS 14.5 update is currently in beta testing as Apple eliminates all final issues before it is released to the public.
