Last week's Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) largely revolved around Apple Music , which debuted on Tuesday with the iOS 8.4 launch.
The new service is not a stand alone app, but rather appears as a collection of features in the Music app, including For You, New, Radio and Connect. For You offers playlist and artist recommendations based on your preferences, while New shows you recently added songs and albums. Radio gives you access to the highly touted Beats 1 worldwide live radio station. Beats 1 is free to all iOS users, regardless of whether or not they subscribe to Apple Music (which will be $9.99 per month following an initial free three month trial period). The Connect feature is a social network where fans can follow and interact with artists.
