Apple's streaming Beats Music service could come with iOS 8.4 update
The iOS 8.4 update is also rumored to debut the new Beats streaming music service which is supposedly going to be integrated into the iOS music application. Originally, it was believed that the Beats service would be included in iOS 9, which carries the nickname Monarch. That also happens to be the name of a Colorado ski-resort.
Apple has been talking about undercutting music streamer Spotify's $10 a month rate by pricing the Beats service at a lower price. There is speculation that Apple will drop the price for streaming music to just $4.99 a month. The company has reportedly been meeting with the record labels and with musicians to garner support for the cut in royalties that would allow Apple to support a lower price. Last May, Apple purchased Beats for $3 billion.
Just the other day, we told you that Apple's first Android app is in the works. Supposedly, the app will offer Beats' streaming music service to Android users.
