Apple Music: All You Need To Know


Among the announcements at WWDC, Apple gave more details on their upcoming music streaming service, and you might not be expecting a couple of them.

Release Date

Apple Music will be released in 100 countries later this month on the 30th of June.


In a bold move to take on the reigning streaming champs, Apple Music will be free for the first 3 months, and $9.99 (£9.99) after that, or $15.99 (£15.99) for a family subscription for up to 6 users to share.

Beats 1 and ‘For You’

Beats 1 is a digital music station based out of London, New York and Los Angeles, set to bring the best and latest music to users 24/7 from some of the biggest names in radio, such as BBC’s Zane Lowe. Another big feature is the ‘For You’ section, building on the excellent curated playlists that made Beats such a good streaming service. Apple Music takes it to the next level though, by looking through your purchases as well as your recently played, to guide you towards more awesome music.

Siri Integration

A steaming service with a personal assistant? Sounds great, right? Users will soon be able to tell Siri to search for their new favourite track, look through their library or control the current song playing.

An Android App Is In The Works

That’s right, an Android Apple Music app will be available a few months after its release on iOS, and it’s currently slated for a fall release.
