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