Apple Music Launches at 8am PDT

Today, June 30th, Apple is launching the music streaming service Apple Music.

To use Apple Music on the iPhone the new iOS 8.4 version is necessary. According to a blog post of Ian Rogers, Senior Director of Apple Music, Apple will release the iOS 8.4 update already at 8am PDT, which is sooner than releases in the past.

This might though still change as Ian Rogers has removed the specific release time from his blog post (via 9to5Mac). Apple is supposed to launch the Beats 1 radio station at 9am PDT. The earlier launch could be in connection with the broadcast launch.

Apple has found in Pharrell the biggest promoter of Apple Music. He will release his new album Freedom today on Apple Music and has released already teasers and beatboxing videos staring besides himself, Cara Delevingne and Justin Timberlake.

Apple is late to the streaming music game, but will come in with brute force. Apple is offering the service free for 3 months and will throw millions into advertising Apple Music. Besides Pharrell there will be exclusive content like a new Dr. Dre album to lure consumers in.
