• Apple Plans on Incorporating Beats Music With iOS Starting 2015



    The Financial Times has recently reported that Apple is looking to group Beats Music streaming service together with the new iOS set to release in 2015. If this really happens, then the streaming music service will be instantly available to all customers owning an iOS device. According to Financial Times:

    Apple will bundle the subscription music service it acquired from Beats into its iOS operating system early next year, instantly making it available on hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads and ramping up pressure on Spotify, the market leader in music streaming.
    Not long ago, we reported that Apple is looking to rebrand and relaunch the Beats Music service sometime early next year. This may be one of the big moves the Cupertino-based company is looking to do. When Apple acquired Beats earlier this year and made it official in July, the music app has been promoted and featured in the App Store as a recommended app.

    It is currently $10 a month for the Beats streaming subscription, but rumors are circulating that Apple wants to take out fees for streaming music. If this is true, the monthly subscription fee will be lowered to $5 a month instead of $10. Just recently, Apple released its Wireless and Bluetooth enabled Beats Solo2, the first device under Apple since the acquisition. It definitely seems like Apple is looking to make many changes and really push Beats, as it should after buying out the company for $3 billion USD.
