Apple finally launched their new music streaming service during the Apple Worldwide Developers meeting in California today.

Apple Music has long been rumored since Apple's purchase of Beats by Dre about a year ago. This brought Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine over to the company.

Apple is already a heavy force in the music industry and they can be well on their way to be at the top for streaming services. They've also lined up BBC radio personality Zane Lowe to join the team.

According to Complex:

"The actual service looks a lot like the interface of that is currently on iPhone's, but it offers full streaming of every song in iTunes, with the ability to create unique playlists based off recommendations that the service finds for you from your preferences. Along with creating your own playlists, the service will also recommend playlists made by other users, which you can then add to your playlists if you like it. The main page of the service will include the latest albums and hot songs for fans to browse through, while also allowing users to search for their past favorites. "

The service will launch on June 30th and will offer users a three-month free subscription. After the free trial is up, the service will cost $9.99 a month. This is pretty standard for most streaming services. Apple is offering a family bundle, which allows up to six members to sign up for only $14.99 a month. Once the service launches, it will be available on all iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad, iPad Touch, Mac and PC. In the fall it will be launched on Android and Apple TV.
