When Apple Music launches on 30 June, it’ll be available for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac and Windows PC in the form of a free update. Apple Music will be found within iTunes on your computer or the Music app on your iOS device, and you’ll be able to sign up and use the service for free for three months, after which Apple will begin charging £9.99 per month for the service.
Apple Music vs Spotify : Which one is Better?
There is no free option of Apple Music, which is where users will turn to Spotify, which offers an ad-supported option if you want to stream music for free and don’t mind the lower quality and ad-filled content.
Apple Music takes advantage of Apple’s already huge iTunes Library, which has more than 30 million tracks. Plus, your own songs ripped from CDs or already downloaded from iTunes will be right there in the Music app for you to listen to alongside the Apple Music tracks you’re streaming. Spotify also has more than 30 million songs available, although a noticeable omission is Taylor Swift.
So far, we’re not completely certain about the audio quality of Apple Music, it’s limited to 256 kbps. That means it’s lower than the 320 kbps offered by the Premium option in Spotify, but higher than the 160 kbps offered in the free version.Apps are available for both Apple Music and Spotify. There’s already a Spotify app for Windows, Mac, iOS, Windows Phone and Android, but Apple Music won’t be getting an Android app until later this year and the Apple TV app isn’t expected until autumn, either.
It’s currently unclear whether Apple is working on a Windows Phone app for Music.Both Apple Music and Spotify allow you to pick and choose songs you want to stream as part of your subscription, but they also boast personalized recommendation algorithms and numerous playlists designed to suit your mood or activity.
