Apple has previously said that its new Apple Music streaming service will launch on June 30, but now we’ve got an exact start time for you iOS fans to mark on your calendars.
Apple Music will go live on June 30 at 8:00 am PT/11:00 am ET, as that’s the time that iOS 8.4 will go live. That’s according to Ian Rogers, former Beats Music CEO, who went on to reveal that the first Beats 1 radio broadcast will kick off at 9:00 am PT/12:00 pm PT, one hour later after iOS 8.4 begins rolling out.
You’re going to need iOS 8.4 to begin using Apple Music, so if you’re interested in trying Apple’s streaming music service, you should begin looking for the update at 8:00 am PT. That’s a couple of hours earlier than Apple typically begins rolling out iOS updates, but presumably they had planned on starting Beats 1 at a certain time and wanted to be sure to give iOS users enough time to update and get ready for the broadcast to begin.
