At WWDC, Apple unveiled its new music streaming service, named ‘Apple Music.’ Tim Cook dropped the “one more thing” bomb like he did with the Apple Watch back in September. Apple last dabbled with streaming with iTunes Radio alongside iOS 7, however it is unclear if that will make into the Apple Music package. The new service has three headlining features; Music Streaming, Beats 1 and Connect – all three are covered below.
Devices and Plans
Apple Music will be launching June 30 starting at $9.99 per month, per user and $14.99 for a family plan, which also requires Family Sharing to be enabled. Apple Music will be available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, Mac, Apple TV, PC and Android. The addition of the Android app is a move that is unlike Apple, but it seems that the company is really looking to grab some of Spotify’s customers and it may be another step to bring them to iPhone.
Apple Music is incorporated within the existing ‘Music’ app and there are now new tabs, with just one for music purchased on iTunes.
