Two of our most popular speakers — the PLAY:1 and PLAY:5 — will be available later today at Apple.com in the USA, at 468 Apple Stores around the world starting October 5, and Apple.com in the coming weeks in most markets outside of the USA.

“Our expanded collaboration with Apple is a great example of our ongoing work with our full ecosystem of partners to make it easier than ever to listen to music out loud at home,” said Patrick Spence, president of Sonos, in a statement. “Apple Music on Sonos is a powerful experience, one we’re proud to bring directly to Apple fans at Apple Stores worldwide.”
Over 140 Apple Stores will have a hands-on Sonos and Apple Music demo available, showcasing a “guided” Sonos app experience on Apple’s iPad Pro.
Apple Music launched on Sonos back in February, after a short beta period last winter.
