Apple Music, iOS 8.4 To Launch 8AM PT Tuesday, Beats 1 Live Radio Follows At 9AM [Ian Rogers]
Over the weekend, former Topspin and Beats executive and now Apple Music Senior Director Ian Rogers, took to social media to share that iOS 8.4 would available for download starting at 8AM PT on Tuesday June 30th.
With Apple Music embedded in the updated iOS, that would also mean that Apple Music will also be available then and that the clock will start ticking on millions of controversial 90 day free Apple Music trials.
One hour later, after hopefully millions have successfully upgraded to the new iOS, Apple's online radio station Beats 1 will go live. Head host Zane Lowe's first interview will be Eminem.
Rogers also said that Apple Music integration with Sonos was in the works, but would not be available at launch.
Apple Exec Ian Rogers: "…unveiling the next chapter"
"Seeing Apple Music on stage at WWDC this month (fast forward to 1:43:00 in the video below)," Rogers wrote in a personal blog post, "it was hard not to feel like the last 20+ years was leading to this day. Tuesday morning we’ll be unveiling the next chapter."
