‘Amazons music software is the perfect way to stream your music’: Apple Music
Apple Music, a subscription-based music service for iPhone and iPad, is set to launch this week, with more than a million users signed up and counting.
Apple Music, which is owned by Apple, will launch as a standalone app for iOS users on Thursday, along with the ability to stream directly to iTunes.
The company’s streaming service will be powered by Apple Music Music’s proprietary Music Connect feature, which allows users to upload their songs and playlists directly to the service from their iPhone or iPad.
This will make it easier for users to find music from the service without having to navigate through multiple app stores.
It is also a major upgrade over the previous version of the Apple Music app, which allowed users to listen to music through Apple’s own website or iTunes.
The new app allows users who already have an Apple Music account to upload music directly to their iPhone.
The new service is a significant upgrade for Apple Music as the company struggles to find new ways to monetise its content and the app is still in beta testing.
In a blog post announcing the new version, Apple Music chief business officer Mike Cavalli said the new service would be the first Apple Music-specific app to have a built-in streaming feature.
The service is expected to be available to download for free on Wednesday.
