Nine Inch Nails leader Trent Reznor would be leading the redesign of Beats Music at Apple

O rumors have rekindled today about the future of streaming from Apple music.

At the beginning of February, we mentioned that Trent Reznor he would be involved in the project with Ian Rogers and Jimmy Iovine, formerly CEO and co-founder of Beats, respectively. Because the goes beyond: the leader of the band Nine Inch Nails would in fact be leading the reformulation of the Beats Music within Apple.

Another “confirmation” also corroborates something we talked about in February: Apple would be planning to launch this redesigned service on iOS 8.4, codenamed “Copper”, and it could be launched around the middle of the year at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2015, when Apple is also due to introduce iOS 9.

A curious part of the report concerns the iTunes Radio. Contrary to what many people think, Apple would have plans to keep it active in parallel with Beats Music, only with a more regional "footprint" as if it were a local radio. The person in charge of this project would be the DJ Zane Lowe, recently hired by Apple.

Although Apple has tried at all costs to put the subscription to the new Beats Music at $ 8 a month, clashes with record labels apparently will force it to charge the same $ 10 a month that the service currently costs.

In parallel to all these details, we are rooted so that these Apple news are quickly expanded internationally.
