Last week a report about Apple buying Beats for $3.2 Billion dominated Apple news, but we still do not know if the deal is actually real. Will Apple come forward today with an announcement?
Last week the Financial Times reported that Apple is close to acquire Beats Music for $3.2B. The unconfirmed report dominated Apple news last week. Things got weird when a video of Dr. Dre and Tyrese surfaced that show them celebrating the acquisition. There is still now official word from Apple.
Apple usually is not announcing their acquisitions, but this one would be the biggest in history. Apple would need to say something about it. After all the reports and speculations an announcement is due for today in my mind. Unless of course the whole report is bogus to begin with or far from closing.
The opinions on why Apple would buy Beats range from getting back into peripherals to the focus being the Beats Music streaming service. Other reports focus on Dr. Dre and Jimmy lovine are the main reason for the acquisition.
Only Apple knows what the truth is. Let's see if today brings clarity to the whole story.
