Last year Apple purchased Beats, the headphones and a streaming music service run by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, for an astounding $3.2 billion. In a new report by The New York Times the two companies are now working on a brand new streaming service that will attempt to rival Spotify. Unlike Spotify, Apple's future service will not have free tier.

Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor has also reportedly been brought on board to "playing a major role in redesigning" the iPhone's music app. The overhaul will reportedly include new features such as curated playlists and a more "vivid visual appeal."

Finally Apple's existing iTunes Radio service will additionally be restructured, with former BBC Radio host Zane Lowe playing a key role. You can read the full article here.
