  • Apple Introduces "Guided Tours" Section to its Apple Music Minisite

    Apple recently introduced a “Guided Tours” section to its Apple Music minisite with the purpose of demonstrating the service’s core functions in a series of videos. Several sections of the tour concentrate on the tabs in the iPhone’s Apple Music app including: For You, New, Radio, Connect and My Music. The other parts of the tour deal with playlists including both curated and user-created iterations.

    An interesting part of the tour was the fact that none of the clips address the iTunes or iPad interfaces for the service or the app for the fourth-gen Apple TV which is set to ship in October. Just as a reminder, third-gen Apple TV’s won’t support the service. The videos are meant to address complaints from many people that complained about the confusing interface. The Apple Music controls tend to be mixed with those for locally-saved content in both iOS and iTunes.

    This comes ahead of a critical period for Apple Music as starting Wednesday, October 1, subscribers will have to pay at least $10 per month for the service and the company is expected to lose a number of people who aren’t satisfied with the service or simply just wanted to take advantage of the trial offer. The number of users that remain after the switch could be a sign of the service’s prospects.

    As a reminder, since the subscriptions are set to auto-renew, everyone who used it has to delve into settings and make sure to cancel it if they don’t want to pay for it going forward.

      the disappearing playlists are an added bonus.
