The Verdict: Should you pay for Apple Music when the free trial ends?

Macworld Staff | July 9, 2015
We're a little over a week into the free three-month trial of Apple Music, and the Macworld staff is more or less dancing in the street. We don't love everything about Apple's new streaming service, but even though most of us were already subscribed to a competing service that we pay our own hard-earned dollars for, Apple Music and its Beats 1 siren song are tempting us to switch, and it sounds like our current services are about to lose a few customers.

Apple Music has a few holes, but it's also correctly suggested to me classic Led Zeppelin albums and Taylor Swift's 1989, which isn't on Rdio (to be fair, Zeppelin was just added there). My affection for Rdio is so great--more than once, on Twitter, I've referred to the service as my boyfriend--that it pains me to admit I'm considering switching, but I really am. If Apple Music's clunkier navigation or reliance on iTunes starts to get under my skin, though, I might switch back.--Susie Ochs
