The day many had been waiting for is finally here, Apple’s music streaming service is live now as the company has released iOS 8.4 for all supported devices. Updating to the new software is required since Apple Music is a part of the native Music app for iOS devices, it provides subscribers with a vast library of songs all for $9.99 per month.
Before Apple starts charging subscribers for this service it’s going to provide everybody with a three month free trial, it’s offering a generous trial period because Apple Music doesn’t have a free ad-supported streaming tier like Spotify does.
Once the three month trial is over for a user only then they have to decide whether or not they want to pay $9.99 per month for the service, its the same amount that many other streaming services are asking, so there’s really no competition on pricing itself.
However Apple is working hard to offer more exclusive content, it has scored Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, Pharrell’s upcoming single and even Taylor Swift’s new album. Besides that it’s also launching new internet radio stations that will feature some of the biggest names in the industry as DJs.
iOS 8.4 is rolling out now gradually for iPhone and iPad owners across the globe, as previously mentioned it is imperative to jump on this upgrade otherwise Apple Music will not be accessible on your device.
