After last week’s reports of Google’s Music service moving backwards in negotiations instead of forward, it looks like Apple will be surpassing the search engine giant in the race to launch a cloud music service. According to an exclusive report from Forex Pros, Apple has completed work on its new “locker” service sources, and is one step closer to getting the service live.
All that’s left is for Apple to get the approval of music labels before it can launch the service. The locker service will work similar to Amazon’s own offering – iTunes customers will be allowed to store their songs on a remote server and be able to access those tunes from wherever they have an internet connection. Apparently music labels are looking forward to secure deals with the company before the service is launched.
However, since Apple has been mum about the whole situation, we can’t say for sure. But from the ways things appear, they’re probably going to get their cloud service up before Google does.
