Apple’s cloud-based music service had been a rumor from past few weeks. But now according to reports coming in our hands, the service could be launching possibly next month.
According to a recent report by Bloomberg, Apple has signed with three major record labels i,e Sony Music Entertainment, EMI, and Warner Music Group to its cloud music service.
Why Apple doing this? Maybe because Google and Amazon are already offering this service and Apple wants to keep up. But according to me, Apple is poised to dominate for two reasons. The first reason being that Apple’s service is rumored to not require the user to upload his/her music collection. Simply having an iTunes account and having those songs already purchased and on record, will give the user access to the song. Second, there are more than 200 million people who already have iTunes accounts, so simply offering another way for an account owner to access his/her music seems like a slam dunk.
