The hotly anticipated debut of Apple Music is set for tomorrow, but what can potential users expect from it? We’ve put together a handy guide answering some of the most common questions about the new streaming service.
When will it officially be available?
Apple Music is going live at 11 AM ET, which is 15:00 GMT. The first Beats One radio broadcast will be going live an hour later.
How many tracks will be available at launch?
Including iTunes and various record labels, it’s estimated that there will be just over 30 million tracks ready to stream at launch.
Can I get it for free?

Yes. Up to six accounts can use the Family Plan option that costs £/$14.99 a month.

iPhones, iPads, Macs and PCs will all have access to Apple Music at its launch. Support for Apple TV and Android devices will be added later in the year.
