Apple Music debuts on June 30th
We have been waiting for a while and now the moment has finally arrived. Apple music will debut worldwide in over 100 countries on June 30. The music streaming service gives you access to millions of songs. You can choose between two types of memberships: Single and Family. But you get to start with a 3-month free membership on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac or PC. Later this year Android users get the opportunity to download the music service as an app.
What is Apple Music?Apple Music is an app, a music streaming service, radio network and social media channel for artists all wrapped in one. You will be able to search and stream music in the extensive catalog. The catalog holds over 30 million songs, from golden oldies to the most popular new releases. Apple Music also brings you Apple Radio. Beats 1 will be integrated in the app and is Apple’s first ever live radio station. Non-stop music will be played by influential DJ’s in New York, Los Angeles and London. Last, but not least, is social network Apple Connect. Connect gives artists a place to add (new) music, pictures, videos and share all of their uploads with fans. Are you excited? By the end of the month you can purchase your Single Membership for $9.99 a month or a Family Membership for $14.99 a month. The Family Membership allows you to share the service with a maximum of 6 other family members*.
What do you get with a membership?If you do not want or need a membership, you still will be able to use Apple Music - provided you have an Apple ID. You can both check out the feed of artists and follow them on Connect and listen to Beats 1 Radio. But an Apple Music membership gives you even more possibilities and grants you access to:
- All Apple Music songs from the catalog;
- All radio stations and features;
- All connect features like playing, liking and saving content;
- Add content to your own library;
- Save music to listen offline;
- Receive personal recommendations.
You can easily buy a membership with an iTunescard!
*The 6 other people you want to add, have to be included in iCloud Family Sharing
