After purchase by Apple, Beats Music drops its price, doubles the trial period
As far as today's update to the Beats Music app is concerned, you probably won't notice much difference in appearance. The update did add some bug fixes and the usual performance enhancements. And Apple has no plans to drop the Android or Windows Phone version of the apps. "It's all about the music," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. Cook also said in a memo that Beats Music will be integrated with iTunes Radio.
Beats' co-founders, Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, will spend time with Apple's electronics and music streaming operations and will work out of Apple's headquarters under the watchful eyes of Eddy Cue. Cook says that the deal will start being a positive to Apple's earnings in the fiscal year that ends September 2015.
