According to a report from The Financial Times, Apple’s rumored music streaming service will launch with a three-month free trial, to lure customers in. It is said that post the three month trial period, Apple will charge customers the standard $9.99 fee that is charged by other music streaming services in the world today.
It is also said that Apple Music will start using the current iTunes logo subsequently, thus unifying the two services to avoid confusion among the customers. The WWDC 2015 event will officially begin on the 8th of June, which is this Monday, so there’s not much time left before we see the new streaming service in action.
It will be interesting to see how Apple will handle cross platform customers and if this service will be exclusive to iOS users. Ideally, Apple would want a large number of users to make use of the new streaming app, mainly customers that belong to the Android platform, which is the most used mobile platform in the world today. Perhaps we’ll see an Apple developed application on the Google Play Store somewhere down the line.
We must note that Apple currently owns Beats Music, so it’s possible that it will be shut down completely to make way for the new service. What do you expect from Apple’s new streaming service? Let us know in the comments section below.
