Apple’s new streaming music service debuts Tuesday. The company has a lot of competition from Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora, and others.
Customers will have to update to the latest iOS on their iPhones. The service costs $9.99 a month, or $14.99 for a family plan (up to six people).
Apple Music will be available across Apple products, and the company promises to release an Android version in the fall.
The streaming service gives customer access to 30 million songs, including Taylor Swift’s hit album ‘1989.’ Swift had promised to keep her album off of Apple Music because the company refused to pay artists during the free, three month trial. Because of Swift’s letter to the company, Apple decided to pay artists and record labels. Swift’s album is not available on rival Spotify.
Apple insists users iTunes Library won’t be affected, and customers will be able to access their music on Apple Music.
