Taylor Swift’s official tour film, “The 1989 World Tour Live,” is now available for streaming exclusively on Apple Music. Filmed at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia, the film includes an entire show with special guest performances, and never-before-seen backstage footage.
iOS 8.4 hit earlier this morning with Apple Music as the new highlight feature. Apple Music also includes the company’s new Beats 1 radio station, which will stream content 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It’s live now, and Zane Lowe kicked it off with a song called City from Spring King.
Widespread criticism of Apple’s decision not to pay royalties during Apple Music’s free trial period has convinced the company to change its mind. Just hours after Taylor Swift spoke out against the policy on her blog, Apple announced it will now pay up while customers listen for free.
Apple announced Apple Music on Monday during its annual WWDC developer conference. The service will launch on June 30 and will offer users a 3-month trial before users will be required to pay a $9.99 monthly subscription. It offers some compelling features, like human curated playlists and 24/7 Beats1 Radio, but why else should you consider it over services like Spotify, Rdio, Google Play Music and Xbox Music? Apple’s latest ads provide some context.
