Will Apple Music take over Spotify, Tidal?

Apple recently released iOS 8.4 to an eagerly awaiting audience Tuesday morning and there are not a lot of differences. The biggest one is undoubtedly the launch of Apple Music, Apple’s new streaming service that lets you listen to music from any genre, or a live global radio stream via Beats 1.

All the music you love, all in one place. Experience Apple Music by updating to the latest iOS.

Many have compared the set up to Spotify, which questions the necessity of Apple Music. There is also a desktop version available for download as well. Will this wipe out the other streaming services like Spotify and Tidal? Many say no. Tidal offers way more than Apple Music, however both are not free. (So I will be sticking to my free version of Spotify.)

Other updates in iOS 8.4 fixed some bugs in iBooks and other apps but this update was primarily to prepare for the bigger and better iOS 9.
