Apple Music is Apple’s latest project to make headlines. For $9.99 a month, its members can now experience streaming music, live radio station, and social networking. What makes Apple Music different from its competitors such as Spotify, Pandora, and the newly launched Tidal, is that the service offers radio stations designed by human curation. This means that stations are created by top radio DJs around the world and top musical experts with the hopes of enhancing the experience of music listeners by making the music they want to hear more accessible than ever. Siri will, also, be included in this music streaming service.
Apple Music launches June 30th. For three months, its members can experience this service in its entirety, but after that time they will be charged $9.99. Apple is also offering a family plan (up to 6 users) that costs its members $14.99 a month. Another plus with Apple Music is that this service will be available on Android and PCs in fall of this year. Until that time, the service will only be on iOS, Mac, and Apple.
