WWDC 2015 brought forth many new digital upgrades to Apple's product lines and also unveiled an all new Apple Music service. With an attempt to compete with the big names like Spotify or Pandora, the music streaming service launched earlier today as part of the iOS 8.4 firmware update.

Priced at $9.99 per month for an individual subscription or $14.99 per month for families up to six, Apple is attempting to lure away customers from competing services with a free 3-month trial period for any new sign-ups. On paper Apple Music hardly compares with its biggest rival Spotify although it has a few benefits like being the only service to offer streaming of Taylor Swift's newest ‘1989' album.

Those interested in testing out Apple Music for themselves and signing up for the 3-month trial can now do so after updating their device firmware through iTunes or the ‘Software Update' option within the ‘Settings' app.
