Tomorrow, June 30th, Apple will be releasing the long-anticipated Apple Music online music streaming service.
Apple Music will offer users access to tens of millions of songs streamed straight to their smartphones and other devices, similar to Spotify and other music subscription services. The service will take from Apple’s enormous catalog of songs that is currently available through the iTunes Store.
Additionally, Apple Music will soon provide support for Sonos sound systems, according to The Wall Street Journal Personal Technology blog. Sonos is well known for their large variety of wireless sound products. The company currently supports wireless streaming from an assortment of online music services including Pandora, Spotify, Google Play Music, Tidal, Rdio, Deezer and Soundcloud. Apple Music is soon to join this list.
Apple Music will offer a free 3-month trial period, followed by a premium service priced at $10 per month. This is the same as the cost of Spotify Premium, although Spotify also offers a free ad-based version of their service.
Apple Music will launch tomorrow at 8:00 am (PST) alongside the release of iOS 8.4, with Beats 1 Radio launching one hour later at 9:00 am.
