Apple is reportedly planning a subscription style music streaming service for iTunes, offering a rival to Spotify’s business model. The Wall Street Journal reports that the rumoured move would follow Apple’s $85m acquisition of music streaming site LaLa in December.
It’s thought that LaLa’s infrastructure will form the framework of a newly rebadged iTunes music-streaming service to take on the likes of Pandora and Spotify. Along with free music streaming, the mooted iTunes overhaul will allow users to back up their music to online libraries, letting them stream their own tunes on their iPhones and the like while on the move, while an overhaul to the iTunes music store will see you able to buy and download music without first installing the iTunes software.
