We already know that Apple has signed deals with three of the four major records labels, and we heard recently that Apple was in discussion with Universal Music to sign the final deal they would need to launch their iCloud music streaming service.
Apple had already signed deals with EMI, Warner Music, and Sony Music, and Universal Music were the final company that Apple needed in order to offer more services with iCloud than the unlicensed offerings from both Google and Amazon.
According to a recent report by Cnet Apple has now signed a deal with Universal Music, and they only thing it has left to do is sign deals with the individual music publishers, and it looks like Apple has also signed number of deals with a range of large music publishers.
So we can expect to hear about Apple’s music streaming service when iCloud is announced in the Keynote speech at next weeks WWDC which will be delivered by Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
