There’s a new service for the Mac, the iPhone (more Apple iPhone 5 info here), and the iPad (more Apple iPad 4G info here) called iTunes Radio. The new music streaming service was unveiled when Apple launched iOS 7.
In a press release (more on the press release here), Apple announced, “Apple today announced iTunes Radio, a free Internet radio service featuring over 200 stations and an incredible catalog of music from the iTunes Store, combined with features only iTunes can deliver. When you tune into iTunes Radio on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC or Apple TV, you’ll have access to stations inspired by the music you already listen to, Featured Stations curated by Apple and genre-focused stations that are personalized just for you. iTunes Radio evolves based on the music you play and download. The more you use iTunes Radio and iTunes, the more it knows what you like to listen to and the more personalized your experience becomes. iTunes Radio also gives you access to exclusive “first listen” premieres from top selling artists, Siri integration, plus the ability to tag or buy anything you hear with just one click.”
Senior vice president of Internet Software and Services at Apple, Eddy Cue, said, “iTunes Radio is an incredible way to listen to personalized radio stations which have been created just for you. It’s the music you love most and the music you’re going to love, and you can easily buy it from the iTunes Store with just one click.”
Regrettably, iTunes Radio can only be used by users in the US. There’s still no word if Apple will make the music streaming service available in the UK.
