Poll results: Did you subscribe to the Apple Music trial?
The iOS update that allows you to take advantage of the newest music streaming service on the market already started hitting your iPhones and iPads the other day. The revamped Apple Music app comes as part of the fresh iOS 8.4 version, and is accompanied by the new Beats 1 curated radio station, the Connect music social network, and other audiophile favorites.

We already showed you how does Apple Music stack up against some of the more popular competing music streaming services, how to change the new Connect tab with the good ol' Playlists, and how to save those playlists for offline listening. We also showed you how to keep using Apple Music even after the free trial expires, but are actually wondering how many of you did subscribe for the trial at all. Granted, Apple gives you the option to uncheck the automatic charging of your account after the trial expires, and will probably warn you if you want to continue using it when time nears, too.

Still, some of you might be happy with just using iTunes, the Beats 1 live station, and the Connect music social network for free, or are content with their current streamer, be it Spotify or something else. It turns out that a good chunk of our responders, almost a third, have subscribed for the trial, after all, giving Apple the benefit of the doubt, while 68% as satisfied with what they currently stream with, or don't use such services at all. It will be interesting to see how many will keep their subscription up once the three-month trial expires, too.

Why should we pay more in the UK for the same service? Apple can stick this where the sun doesn't shine, just like their over hyped watch. I will be moving to Android when I next upgrade

Because every Apple user is Apple's bitch. They can stick whatever in their whatevers and call it great without users whining how crappy the services are.

You confuse Apple users with iTard fanboys too much. Not all users are Apple's bae's.

Should've made this without a free 3-month trial and free all the way with premium version. Useless.
