Apple Music is Next
The range of the service was rapidly expanded in the early years to include games, films, books, podcasts and other media. Apple has been busy for some time, breaking up these components into its apps.
With the switch to Apple Music, the company hopes to respond to the shift in the market from music downloads to music streaming.
