Apple Music is Apple's massive music service. You pay a flat fee to unlock access to Apple Music's entire catalogue for listening instead of owning these tracks. It is available on all Apple devices (iPhones, iPads, Macs, the 4th Gen Apple TV and the Apple Watch) as well as on PCs and Android devices.
