Apple directors have been rather talkative over the weekend about the impending release of Apple Music. Former Beats Music CEO, who now works as a Senior Director of Apple Music, blogged about the item’s launch. He remembers on the history of digital music and radio saying that seeing Apple Music on stage at WWDC ‘‘ it was tough not to feel like the last 20+ years was leading to this day’.
Interestingly, Apple will be launching iOS 8.4 at 8 AM on June 30th that includes the newly revamped Music app to support Apple Music. This is somewhat earlier than the normal 10 AM release window. The modification in scheduling appears to be in service of Beats 1, Apple’s worldwide radio station, which will begin streaming from 9 AM on the exact same day.
On the other hand, Eddy Hint has also been leaking some details about Apple Music on Twitter …
Hint revealed that the same 25,000 tune library limit will apply to Apple Music at launch as exists with iTunes Match today. However, for iOS 9, Apple is ‘‘ working’ on raising that limitation to 100,000 tunes permitting users to make the most of the extra features with much larger libraries.
Apple Music needs iOS 8.4 due for release at 8 AM on June 30th. For designers currently running iOS 9, Eddy Cue also said that a new iOS 9 beta seed will certainly add support the service.
