Universal has allegedly closed the circle today by joining iCloud – uniting the four major music labels into the Apple streaming service which is expected to be revealed this Monday at the Worldwide Developers Conference.
The other main record labels – Sony, Warner and EMI – are already onboard with licensing agreements in place to bring high quality versions of our favourite tracks to the iCloud service which will work by scanning our music collection, storing the data at Apple HQ and allowing us to replay in High Quality wirelessly to a variety of gadgets.
However, currently the Universal Music Group’s involvement is still unconfirmed. But excitement is abound about the music super-stable being assembled by Apple and the official word is expected in that keynote address from the San Francisco conference next week.
We think you’ll agree, it’s an exciting time to be a music fan and the Gadget Helpline will be in tune with iCloud and all the announcements from the WWDC ’11 – starting on Monday 6th June.
