During the keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2015 yesterday, Apple CEO unveiled the traditional “one more thing” which turned out to be the new music streaming service we had all been hearing about for the past few months. Apple Music is going to be launched later this month and an app for Android is also going to be released later this year. According to a new report the Apple Music songs library is not quite there yet because Apple is yet to secure licenses for some of the biggest artists that the world has ever seen.

Since Apple is inking deals with all major labels this means that users can expect the same number of songs that they would get on rivals such as Spotify, the library is going to offer around 30 million tracks for on-demand streaming.

A source tells Bloomberg Business that Apple does not have licenses for many major artists such as The Beatles, so it’s working hard to secure those licenses and get additional content for the service.

Though it doesn’t seem like Apple is going to face any major hurdles in getting this all wrapped up before the time comes to flip the switch on Apple Music. The music streaming service is due to be launched on iOS devices, Mac and Windows come June 30th, it will arrive on the Apple TV and Android in the fall.
