Apple Music coming to South Africa

Apple Music will be available in South Africa when it launches in over 100 countries around the world, a spokesperson for the company told MyBroadband.

The new music streaming service will launch on 30 June 2015, with media reports suggesting that Apple Music will go live from 17:00 South African time.

Apple first announced its music streaming service at its Worldwide Developer Conference on 8 June, along with a social service called Connect and a 24-hour online radio station called Beats 1.

No prices for the service outside the US have been announced, but users of the iOS 8.4 beta say they have seen local prices for the service.

In the US, Apple Music will cost $9.99 per month for a single membership, or $14.99 per month for a family membership which includes access for up to six people.

In South Africa, the individual subscription looks set to cost R59.99 per month, while the family package will cost R89.99 per month.

Apple will offer a free trial of the service for the first three months after you sign up.

Android support for Apple Music will comes “this fall” (September – November 2015), said Apple.
