The new Apple Music streaming service is expected to be made official at WWDC 2015 and now according to a recent report the service will cost $10 a month.
This is the price we previously heard for the service, Apple had wanted to offer it for less but came up against barriers with the record labels who did not want the service to cost more than $9.99 a month.
We previously heard that Apple will offer free trials of their new Apple Music Streaming service to its iTunes users of between one and three months.
According to a recent report by the WSJ, Apple intends to prompt people who buy an $10 album on iTunes to sign up to their Apple Music streaming service for $10 a month.
110 million iTune users spent around $30 each on the service in the last 12 months, so Apple may have trouble convincing these people to spend almost four times that, $120 a year on their new service.
Apple also has big competition from companies like Spotify who are already well established in the streaming market, although Apple does have a larger user based to market its new service to.
We will have more details on Apple’s new music streaming service when it is announced at WWDC 2015 next week.
