Macworld FAQ on Apple’s New App Store Subscriptions

Glenn Fleishman, writing for Macworld:

Does this change allow apps to offer a free trial?

Sort of. Apple lets developers optionally offer a free trial for in-app purchase subscriptions, which range from 7 days for a one-month recurring subscription to one month for a one-year term. If an app requires a subscription to use at all, then a free trial of the subscription effectively translates to a free trial of the app. An app that has some features and sells the rest with subscription can also offer a free trial just of those added options.

I confirmed with Apple today that free trials are definitely an option for any app that is approved for subscription pricing.
