Mark Gurman, writing for 9 to 5 Mac:
According to a report today from Billboard, Apple does not have the deals in place to launch its long-awaited Beats Music revamp as its new streaming music service. The report quotes a source as saying “June won’t be the release date. The deals aren’t done,” but our sources say that an announcement at the June 8th WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) keynote is still planned. A few weeks following the announcement, in late June, Apple will fully release the service as part of two new software products: iOS 8.4 and iTunes 12.2, according to sources briefed on the plans.
We’ll know for sure in four weeks when Tim Cook takes stage. And I have to say, I’m actually excited to see what this new streaming service has to offer.
