Can a spouse of an EU citizen that lives in the UK but has not yet applied still apply for pre-settled status?

EU citizens and their family members who arrived in the UK prior to 31 December 2020 were eligible for the EU Settlement Scheme and they had up until 30 June 2021 to submit an application. Family members who were not in the UK before 31 December 2020 can apply for an EU Settlement Scheme family permit if they fall under one of the categories covered.
