Apple Music is live as iOS 8.4 gets pushed out
With today's launch of iOS 8.4, Apple Music is now available through the revamped Music app. Those with an Apple device running the new iOS build can listen to Beats 1, Apple's always on global radio station which started operations at noon EDT in the U.S. The Apple Music streaming subscription service now offers a three-month free trial. After that, the cost is $9.99 per month. A family plan covering up to six users is available for $14.99 per month.

The on-demand streaming service gives subscribers the opportunity to select tunes from a library of 30 million songs. While there is no ad-supported free version of that service, those with an Apple ID can listen to Beats 1 for free, listen for free to other Apple radio stations with limited skips, and access Connects without a charge. The latter is a social-media "bulletin board" where artists can connect and socialize with their fans.

The iOS 8.4 update is being sent out OTA, and is also available through iTunes.
