As promised, Apple launched its new music streaming service on June 30, 2015. The service offers both a free and paid option for all iPhone and iPad users who upgraded to iOS 8.4, but using the free tier can be a bit confusing. Users must sign up for the free 3 month trial period to access any of the Apple Music features. This means you must disable the free trial option if you do not want to pay $9.99 a month once it expires. Here's how:
Apple Music requires iOS 8.4 or later for access. The revamped Music app will launch publicly with iOS 8.4 at the end of June, 2015.
Those with iOS devices running older versions of iOS will not be able to listen to Apple Music unless they update.
Yes, Apple Music will be available on Android starting in fall 2015.
Beats Music subscribers have enjoyed access to the service on Android devices as well as on other platforms. Apple intends to continue this by offering Apple Music members an option to listen on Android devices.
