From the pioneers of the iPod and iTunes, Apple Music encapsulates the best music from artists around the globe to create a platform that both iOS and Android users can enjoy. Right now, new subscribers can get three free months of the premium music streaming service simply by signing up, or six free months with the purchase of an Apple-owned audio product (AirPods, HomePod mini, or Beats). Afterwards, you can opt into the following plans:
- Apple Music Voice Plan for $4.99 per month
- Apple Music Student Plan for $4.99 per month
- Individual Plan for $9.99 per month
- Family Plan (up to 5 people) for $14.99 per month
Besides hosting an expansive catalog of songs and playlists, Apple Music allows you to upload up to 100,000 tracks from your personal music collections via the iCloud Music Library. For Apple users, you can also take advantage of lossless audio -- a feature that Spotify doesn't have -- which ensures that the music you listen to sounds exactly the same as it does from the original studio recording.
