Beats on all iPhones by March

21 November 2014

beatsbydrdrelogo Apple are planning on forcing more stuff onto your iPhone. A new iOS update in March will automatically install the Beats Music app to all iPhones.

Apple bought Beats back in May for $3 billion, and it looked like they'd lost interest in it when little was mentioned of it back when they launched the iPhone 6.

This follows Apple's foisting of U2's latest album into everyone's iTunes and shoving iBooks in with the iOS 8 update.

The Beats streaming service will have two different subscription plans $9.99 (£6) per month or $99.99 (£67) per year.

This will no doubt ruffle feathers going up against Spotify, who do a monthly subscription, but not an annual one as yet.

Apparently Beats Music currently has around 110,000 subscribers, which looks set to sky-rocket should Apple's evil plan work. Can we just ban all bloatware now?
