Apple is reportedly bringing its customers a new way to listen to music on the go.
Insiders tell Bloomberg.com the company has reached a deal with several major record labels to let people stream music directly from the Internet to their iPods, iPads or other mobile devices. The so-called “cloud” music service means iTunes users could store all their songs in one place on the Web and sync them to any device, instead of having to download songs onto individual devices with limited storage space. The insiders promise Apple’s new service will have a lot more features than cloud music services recently launched by Google and Amazon.com. Apple still needs a deal with Universal Music and music publishers before it can launch its cloud service. A formal preview could come at Apple’s developers conference next month.
