If you’re thinking of buying a new vehicle that supports Apple’s CarPlay, Fiat Chrysler and Volkswagen are ready to sweeten the deal.
In the U.S., select Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, and Ram cars with CarPlay will come with six months of free Apple Music; in Europe, certain new Volkswagens with CarPlay will offer the same six-month deal, so long as customers register with VW’s Car-Net connectivity service.
Apple offers pretty much anyone a free three-month trial of its unlimited audio streaming service Apple Music, but once that trial ends, you generally can’t get an equivalent or longer second trial.
With six months of service, the Fiat Chrysler/Volkswagen deal is the longest free Apple Music service offer out there, and a great perk for CarPlay users looking for a better-than-radio alternative.
U.S. and European customers will have access to the full 45 million song Apple Music catalog, plus standard CarPlay features.
There are a few caveats.
