Apple Music

Apple Music

A music streaming service from Apple introduced in 2015. Apple Music lets subscribers listen to their own music collection along with millions of tracks in the Apple Music Library. iTunes Radio became part of Apple Music with some changes in station programming, and live broadcasts from the Beats 1 channel were added (Apple acquired Beats Music and Beats Electronics in 2014). The Connect feature enables artists to share photos, videos and lyrics to give fans a closer look at their work, and Siri was updated to take music requests.
