Apple Music Launch and live in South Africa too!
The Apple Music launch has happened and for once South Africa has not been left out of the loop as has often been the case in the past.
Look how long it took for iTunes to become available here!
The biggest streaming platform (other than YouTube) is Spotify and as a South African one can still not subscribe to their service in this territory.
There has been a lot of debate as to what sort of impact the Apple Music launch will have on their rivals and it seems that one of the biggest potential advantages is that this service will now be available in over 100 countries.
Bottom line, if you can’t get Spotify here and you want to subscribe to a streaming service, the Apple Music launch could just well be the answer for many eager music fans.
Technology giant Apple has officially included South Africa among 100 countries where it has switched on its streaming music service.
