This may not be welcome news for Apple’s fans. It appears that the AirPods, the tech giant’s stylish headphones for its latest flagship devices (the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus), will not be ready for release in time for the busy holiday shopping season. The same goes for the BeatsX headphones, too. There is still some talk that the AirPods will launch before the start of the new year, but in very limited stocks. As for the BeatsX headphones, prospective buyers may have to wait three months before they can purchase a pair.
Apple will be having an event in a few days, specifically this coming September 7th in the city of San Francisco in California at exactly 10 AM Pacific Time, and many industry watchers and end users alike are fully expecting the tech giant to officially unveil its newest iPhone offering, plus highly awaited updates to its one and only wearable device to date, the Apple Watch. But it appears that less than a week from now, the company may also be planning to debut a new pair of Beats headphones.
Apple Music, Apple’s take on music streaming subscription services, is now officially live, as promised. The tech giant has just launched its newest music service, which costs $10 per month and is now available in over 100 countries. The launch was done via an update to Apple’s iOS 8.4, the latest iteration of the company’s iOS 8 mobile operating system. This means that anybody with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch can now try it out.
According to a high ranking officer of Apple, the Apple Music streaming service will officially debut on June 30th of this year, together with iOS 8.4, the latest iteration of the iOS 8 mobile operating system, as well as the Beats 1 radio station.
Apple fans are finally seeing the result of Apple's high profile acquisition of Beats Music one year ago for a sum of $3 billion. Together with the official unveiling of iOS 9, the newest version of Apple's mobile operating system, the company also announced Apple Music, its first ever music streaming service.
Developed from the Beats Music streaming subscription, Apple Music is being offered to subscribers at $10 per month. Apple will also be offering a plan for families or groups consisting of a maximum of 6 members to share an Apple Music subscription for $15 per month.
Apple has just released iOS 8.4 beta, which is actually the third for this iOS software update. But what can iOS users expect from this latest installment? Well, for starters, it offers an overhauled Music app, specifically bringing changes to both the user interface and functionality aspects of the playback app of Apple's mobile operating system.
Apple has just released iOS 8.3 a couple of days ago. But now, the company is already busy with the next upcoming version, which will come with a host of new features. The developer preview of iOS 8.4 will reportedly ship with a fresh new update of Apple's native iOS Music app, which will incorporate a new look as well as an enhanced version of iTunes radio.
Earlier this year, Apple had acquired Beats Electronics for $3 billion. But since the acquisition, there has been much speculation as to what Apple's plans are for Beats. Now, it appears that things might be taking a huge left turn. As reported by TechCrunch, sources have purportedly revealed that Apple is planning to discontinue the Beats Music streaming service.
