‘Apple Music’ Service Set To Arrive Next Month
Apple’s long anticipated music service is reportedly set to be launched at the brand’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote scheduled for 8th June. This music service is built into a redesigned version of the Music app on iOS based on Beats Music. Apple will also revamp its iTunes Radio and expand this service to new countries.
It will have a social angle to it so as to make it an interactive feature for music lovers. Only artists will have their own profiles, enabling them to post media including music samples and share content from other artists. The regular users can like or comment only using their iTunes accounts.
According to 9t05mac, Apple may simply call this music service as ‘Apple Music’.
Apple is all set to revamp and replace its long forgotten ‘iTunes Ping’ with ‘Apple Music’. ‘iTunes Ping’ was a music social network service launched in September 2010 but had to be shut down two years later.
The service will offer a free trial, which may be available for one to three months.
The Verge reports, “Apple is petitioning music labels to kill free streaming options, and that the FTC is investigating the company’s business practices.”
Apple has released its iOS 8.4 beta 3 with many integrations as a platform for the new Music service to fire up.
