Early Look At Apple Music

iPhone and iPad users running the beta versions of iOS 8.4/9 will see a preview of Apple Music and the Beats 1 streaming radio service. So far it is just placeholders with no music available. The offer page seems to indicate the Canadian price for an Apple Music subscription will be $9.99/mo and $14.99/mo for the Family Plan, but before you get too excited those are US dollar prices which will likely convert to around $12.29 and $18.29 on the launch date of June 30.

You can also use Siri to tag music you hear around you. Tagged songs are added to a list so you can preview or buy them later.
