Subscriptions to Beats Music have been slow going since its inception compared to other music streaming services like Spotify or Pandora. That will change soon.
Dr. Dre and Beats Music recently announced that in March of next year, all iPhones will be equipped with the Beats Music service via an iOS update as users can pay either $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year if they choose to subscribe.
According to Financial Times, the move will put pressure on other streaming services. They also relayed that there may be a free trial version to the application, similar to Spotify.
Earlier this year Apple acquired Beats Music for $3 billion. At the time, Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine made a statement explaining the deal's precedent.
“I’ve always known in my heart that Beats belonged with Apple,” he said. “The idea when we started the company was inspired by Apple’s unmatched ability to marry culture and technology. Apple’s deep commitment to music fans, artists, songwriters and the music industry is something special.”
