Ted Lasso fans are gearing up for season 2 of the hit show, streaming on Apple TV Plus starting July 23. Subscribing to Apple's streaming service costs $5 a month, but Apple has repeatedly extended free trials for people who bought a new Apple device. However, many of those trials are set to expire on July 1 -- meaning you may need to start paying if you want to keep up with the Richmond team's antics. 

If you don't cancel your free trial, your account will automatically renew at the monthly rate of $5 (£5, AU$8). If you're planning to remain a subscriber for the long haul, you'll probably want to go in and change that to the yearly rate of $50 to save 10 bucks. (And starting July 1, if you buy a new Apple device, you'll only get three months of free Apple TV Plus service, instead of a full year.)

Luckily, there are a couple of easy ways to find out if you're on an Apple TV Plus free trial, and when it runs out, so you can plan ahead.
