Apple has invited music lovers to join this platform. The membership will be free for the first three months; after that, users will be charged $9.99 per month for single use and $14.99 for a family pack.
Apple Music is ready to start with a collection of 30 million songs, but it will grow as the music industry grows. The user can stream songs he or she likes.
