Apple Music: music streaming for iOS and Android

Along with the announcement of iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, Apple has also announced their upcoming music streaming service called Apple Music which will be made available for iOS and Android.


Apple Music will go head-to-head with other big music streaming services like Spotify. It boasts a catalog of over 30 million songs, a live radio station called Beats 1 which broadcasts live 24 hours a day to over 100 countries, and Connect where artists can share lyrics, backstage photos, videos or even release their latest song directly to fans directly from their iPhone.

Apple Music will be available for the Phone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and PC on June 30 in over 100 countries, followed by Apple TV and Android phones this fall (September to November). It comes with a 3-month free membership, after which a $9.99/month subscription fee will apply. There’s also a family plan for up to six family members for $14.99.

      I think if Apple Philippines decides to launch/enable this in the Philippines, they will also offer a local rate which is competitive in the Philippine market.

      FYI, Spotify Premium in the Philippines is only Php 129.00 per month but in the US, it costs USD 9.99

    Well the family plan for $14.99 a month is $2.5 per person.

    Only P110-P115 per person, not bad if you ask me.

    Plus, hopefully Apple introduces local pricing like Spotify.
