If you plan to purchase AirPods to get this offer, you should make sure they're eligible. Please choose any of the followings:

With one of the eligible audio devices above, you have 90 days after first pairing your device to take advantage of your six free months Apple Music. For current owners of eligible AirPods, a new purchase won't be necessary, since you have 90 days after upgrading to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS to redeem your six months free.
