Curated Canadian Radio Stations Showing within Latest iOS 8.4, iOS 9 Betas [PICS]


The Music app in iOS 8.4 beta 4 and iOS 9 beta 1 are now showing a new Radio tab along the bottom, ahead of Apple Music’s worldwide launch on June 30.

The Radio tab along the bottom right shows ‘Featured Stations’ such as ‘Charting Now’, ‘All-City’, ‘Soundsystem’ and more. There are also regional stations under categories titled Canadian and Musique Francophone as well. Worldwide radio stations such as Beats 1 are not showing in Canada.

The stations are not in operation as music does not stream when you press play. Also, landing pages for Apple Music still are showing, and as you can see below, prices are listed at $9.99 and $14.99 for the Individual and Family plans. While these the announced USA prices, regional pricing for Canada will be announced later, according to Apple’s original press release.

Remember iTunes Radio? That was rumoured for an ‘early 2014’ launch here but never materialized. Maybe Apple Music will make up for its absence?

Apple Music is set to launch at the end of the month in over 100 countries, while the Canadian website says it’s “coming soon”.

    Customers with subscription to iTunes Match, will they still need the annual service if they subscribe to Apple Music?

  • I don’t think so…apple music says it takes all of your existing music and puts it in the cloud…so sounds like it does what iTunes Match already does.

    thats not what he means

    itunes radio came in two tiers, free and premium (forgot what the amount was)

    itunes match subscribers automatically got premium at no added cost

  • I’m pretty sure he meant what I answered…in Canada we don’t even have iTunes Radio yet so he wouldn’t even know that feature existed (I didn’t).

  • Crosseyedmofo

    he was asking if match applied to apple music like it did radio

    you explained how match works

  • No that’s not exactly what they asked, so unless you talked to the OP in person, you have no clue WHAT they really wanted to know. You just think you do.
