It seems that Apple plans to push its Beats Music service to all iPhone and iPads next year, according to a recent story reported by The Financial Times publication. Apple bought the company for around $3 billion and now it seems that it is getting rid to reap the benefits from the acquisition.
Apple will equip iPhones and iPads with Beats Music via a software update, which could arrive as soon as March, the publication says. At the moment, however, we don't know whether the streaming service will arrive under the Beats brand or will be part of Apple's existing iTunes service.
At the moment, Beats Music exists as a US-only service, so it could be possible that the only North American owners of iPhones and iPads will get it, as probably there's more work to be done before the company can make the service available on a global scale.
Sales of digital music downloads have gradually declined, which has helped such services as Spotify and Pandora flourish. But now it seems that they are going to face huge pressure from Apple. Right now, a subscription to Beats Music costs $9.99 a month or $99.99 for 12 months.
