About Apple Music
Apple Music is a music and video streaming service developed by Apple Inc. Users select music to stream to their device on-demand, or they can listen to existing, curated playlists. New subscribers get a three-month free trial period before the service requires a monthly subscription.
Originally strictly a music service, it began expanding into video in 2016. Executive Jimmy Iovine has stated that the intention for the service is to become a “cultural platform”, and Apple reportedly wants the service to be a “one-stop-shop for pop culture“. The company is actively investing heavily in the production and purchasing of video content, both in terms of music videos and concert footage that support music releases, as well as web series and feature films.
In iOS 10, the app received a significant redesign, which received positive reviews for an updated interface with less clutter, improved navigation, and a bigger emphasis on users’ libraries. The service rapidly gained popularity after its launch, passing the milestone of 10 million subscribers in only six months.
