Apple Music is now officially available on iOS devices, as the tech giant shows its hand in the increasingly hard fought battle for music fans' cash.
The streaming service launched here in the UK last might as part of the iOS 8.4 update for iPhones and iPads.
Users who open their device’s native Music app will be offered the option to start a free three-month trial by signing into the iTunes Store using their Apple ID.
When the no-charge introductory period ends, iDevice owners can choose from a £9.99 per month option for a single user or a £14.99 per month family deal for up to six members of the same household.
From there, they can access over 30 million tracks for streaming. Or listen to shows presented by the likes of DJ Zane Lowe and musician St Vincent via Apple’s new global Beats 1 radio service.
Apple will also match up to 100,000 locally stored songs from your iTunes, meaning you can stream tracks you’ve already bought as well.
While rival service Spotify offers this option, the seamlessness that Apple Music offers is likely to be a big draw for music fans.
Apple has already said it will pay royalties to artists during the initial three-month trail period. It had planned not to, but was forced into a climbdown by UK independent labels and Taylor Swift.
