In an announcement from Verizon, the telecommunications company has revealed their new partnership with Apple. This move allows subscribers of its Verizon Unlimited tier six free months of Apple Music.
Verizon introduced its three unlimited plans at the beginning of the year, but this is the first major perk users are receiving. What’s even more interesting is that Verizon says the promotion is valid for new and existing Apple Music subscribers. Verizon also claims that this is just the beginning of its “exclusive” partnership with Apple. We’re not exactly sure what this means, but it could hold a lot for Verizon subscribers.
Customers will be able to lock in their deal beginning August 16th by visiting Verizon’s website. The full press release for the carrier’s announcement can be found below:
