Apple announced at its developer's conference earlier in June that it would begin its own three-part music streaming service. Now three weeks, later the updated music app is ready to launch, with radio streaming set to begin at 9 a.m. PST.
After musing on the birth of digital music, Rogers said that the June announcement of Apple Music made it "hard not to feel like the last 20 plus years was leading to this day." Rogers then linked to a Facebook event that details how users can update to the newest software.
Rogers was not the only Apple executive to let details slip about Apple Music over the weekend. Eddy Cue, the company's senior vice president, took to Twitter to speak with users about the updated app.
As part of his Twitter exchange, Cue explained how Apple Music subscribers would not need to keep an existing iTunes Match account to have information generated about albums or songs not bought through the iTunes store.

Cue also announced news about the number of songs Apple Music will be able to match throughout the year.
In response to another question, Cue said the Beats app will also update so it can work with Apple Music.
