iTunes Radio

An Internet radio service from Apple introduced in 2013. With more than 200 stations, iTunes Radio provided a Pandora-like service, tailoring the music the more the user listens. iTunes Radio and the Siri virtual assistant were integrated to let users comment or ask Siri to play a song or similar songs. In 2015, iTunes Radio migrated to Apple Music Radio (see Apple Music). See Internet radio, Pandora, iTunes Match and iTunes.
