Hidden icons in iOS 6.1 point to streaming music service by Apple

0. phoneArena 05 Feb 2013, 09:53 posted on

Thanks to files buried inside iOS 6.1, speculation is rampant that Apple will reveal a streaming music service later this year; the iPad Music app on jailbroken iPads running iOS 6.1 show "radio button" files along with a radio icon that used to appear on iTunes for Mac and with the word "Buy" appearing in the filename, it certainly seems that Apple has something brewing...

On Android there's Music Unlimited (by Sony), and WP users can use Zune. For a monthly fee (which IMHO is not so high because with the same amount you just buy 10 songs on itunes) you can listen to whatever you want (and I mean whatever) in streaming, and you can also download music on your devices (tablets and phones) and for offline listening.
Yet when this service will come out I bet that most newspapers and websites will praise Apple for "inventing" this new way of listening to music and revolutionary business model... and I can imagine the press conference: "It's magic! You can stream music to your iphone! It's awesome!"
