Apple Music was announced on 8th of June, 2015 at WWDC and now the services have been launched on 30th of June. The services are now available to be downloaded on PC, MAC system and iOS devices. Moreover Apple Music will be automatically available on the iPad and iPhone with iOS 9.0 update which is scheduled to be available in later part of this month.

2.Catalogue of Music

When it comes to music streaming services, music catalogue plays a very important role. Talking for Apple Music and Spotify in present times, both of them seems to be at same platform with collection of around 30 million songs. Though in order to attract the users, Apple Music claims that it will add more exclusive songs as well tracks from unsigned artists to their list.

Both Apple Music and Spotify enables the user to supplement the streamed catalogs with their own music. Using services of Spotify one can include music files available on computer and also add them to the existing playlist. With Apple Music, which you have put up in your iTunes account automatically. But if you are a fan of Taylor Swift then surely Apple Music will win your hearts as they have managed to get him on their services.

3.Price

Price is also a major deciding factor while selecting a music streaming service. The services of Apple Music was launched on 30th of June and is available as a free update for the users of iPad, Mac, iPhone, Windows PC and iPod Touch. Once you update your software, the services will be available in iTunes on your PC and in Music app on the iOS devices.

For those who do not wish to put burden on their pockets, a free version of the Apple Music service is also available. But it will only come with Connect feature that will enable you to view or follow the artists but not play, save or like the tracks. Family package is also offered by Apple Music where 6 individuals can be a part of the package which comes for a price of £ 14.99 per month.

When it comes to pricing, Spotify scores better due to its added features and facilities. For all those users who do not mind compromising on the quality, Spotify offers an option of ad-supported streaming where users can stream a track for free but it will have ad content.

4.Audio Quality

This was equally important for the music. For instance, Jimmy could not be beaten at guitar, and John Bonham produced the best drum beats. You will agree with me that each of their songs were just excellent. They will always be great artistic legendries in the contemporary music.

5.Compatibility

Spotify can be considered to be a better option in terms of compatibility as there is a Spotify app supporting Mac, iOS devices, Windows phone as well as Android. Apple Music at present does not have an app for Android and Windows devices. Moreover, the app for Apple TV is also not expected very soon.

6.Radio Services

Though radio services are available for Spotify as well as Apple Music, but both of them have different working pattern. There is a live and 24X7 global radio station called Beats 1 at Apple Music which streams from LA, London and New York. In order to make the radio experience interesting and enjoyable, DJ’s are also hired by Apple Music. The Apple Music Radio stations also provides option to the users to go for the music based on various genres, and thus you can even skip few songs in order to tune to the stations.

Though there is no live radio for the Spotify services, it enables the user to create their own radio stations on the basis of favorite songs, artists, genres, albums and other criteria, and the songs will match them. Thus the radio station services by Spotify are on demand and enable you to enjoy nonstop music round the clock. Moreover, you can even make the Spotify understand you choice by up voting or down voting the songs.

There is a "For You" tab in Apple music that fills up with your recommendations as you select tracks of your choice.
