Report: Apple's streaming service to be unveiled at WWDC, priced to undercut Spotify
The latest speculation has Apple introducing the music streaming site at its WWDC Developers Conference in June. The keynote is penciled in for June 8th, which could be when the service is revealed. As far back as last October, there was talk that Apple's new service would aim to undercut industry leader Spotify. In fact, there was talk that Apple was renegotiating with record labels and artists in order to offer service no higher than $7.99 a month. Spotify charges $9.99 a month for its service.
Apple's new iTunes music streaming service will employ features that Apple picked up from its $3 billion acquisition of Beats. The service also will be offered to Android users via an app developed by Apple. The company recently posted job listings for Android developers to replace some who have left the company.
While it still is possible that the new streaming music service will be ready for iOS 8.4, it is probably more likely to be stuffed into iOS 9. The service will be found in the iOS Music app and is said to function similarly to Beats Music for iPhone.
