The day after Swift’s letter, Apple’s Vice President of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue announced on Twitter that Apple had changed its policy, and that Apple Music “will pay artist for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period”. On Twitter, Swift wrote “After the events of this week, I’ve decided to put 1989 on Apple Music… And happily so”. She concluded saying it was “the first time it’s felt right in my gut to stream my album”.
You can also browse and buy from the iTunes store. Here you can find music, podcasts, and video, plus anything you purchase is immediately available from any device where you sign into iTunes with your Apple account.
Bypassing iTunes to sync devices requires a paid subscription: Not only does iTunes have some design issues, but it’s also the only free and authorized method to sync music in iCloud with your iPhone or iPad. If you want to go to your iCloud directly, you must pay $25 a year for “Apple Match” or $10 a month for Apple Music, the company’s competitor to Spotify.
The Zakk Blaze are over the ear Bluetooth headphones that have a rare mix of great sound quality and great looks. The headphones have a LED ring on both the earcups that can be customised according to the song you’re listening to or maybe the mood you’re in. The headphones have 40mm drivers and up to 10 meters of Bluetooth range. There is a headphone jack for when you run out of battery and an AUX cable comes bundled in the box. The Zakk Blaze take about 3 hours to fully charge and the company claims that they have a playback time of up to 20 hours which is impressive!
In August 2016, Frank Ocean released Blonde exclusively on Apple Music. The decision was made by Ocean independently, without Def Jam Recordings, his former label, being a part of the deal. The exclusive deal reportedly “ignited a music streaming war”. The move followed in the footsteps of other artists, including Adele, Coldplay, Future, Drake, Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Kanye West, who released albums on exclusive terms with music streaming competitors of leading service Spotify. Jonathan Prince, Spotify’s head of communications, told The Verge that “We’re not really in the business of paying for exclusives, because we think they’re bad for artists and they’re bad for fans. Artists want as many fans as possible to hear their music, and fans want to be able to hear whatever they’re excited about or interested in — exclusives get in the way of that for both sides. Of course, we understand that short promotional exclusives are common and we don’t have an absolute policy against them, but we definitely think the best practice for everybody is wide release”. Ocean’s independent move to Apple Music exclusivity caused “a major fight in the music industry”, and Universal Music Group reportedly banned the practice of exclusive releases for its signed artists. Soon after, several major record labels followed Universal, marking a significant change in the industry. According to unnamed label executives, Spotify had also introduced a new policy that said that the service would not give the same level of promotion once an album arrives on Spotify after other services, including not being prominently featured in playlists. Rolling Stone wrote in October 2016 that “if you wanted to keep up with new albums by Beyoncé, Drake, Frank Ocean and Kanye West, among many others, you would have had to subscribe to not one but two streaming services”, adding that “But over the past few months, a backlash has developed against this new reality”. Lady Gaga told Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio that “I told my label that if they signed those contracts with Apple Music and Tidal, I’d leak all my own new music”.

I rarely see anyone who does not own an Apple product actually use this programming disaster. Statistics alone tells you the quality of this software, that you are either forced to use it, or not at all. Even for the number for fans out there, the reviews for iTunes are rather critical, further confirming the poor quality of this software. Long answer short, it is an oversized, underperforming, major security problem piece of stonesage software that you would probably never want to have on your own computer.
