I bought two of these on Amazon for my wife and I, and love it - simple, low profile, the correct orientation for Nightstand Mode, and a nice tacky base to hold it firm to our nightstands.     from Spigen.
Once kinks are worked out, I can get past any trust concerns...really its availability and cost of streaming everything, all the time, including your own music, when local sync works perfectly fine.   A family of 4 with cellular data turned on for Apple Music all four iPhones and perhaps an iPad or two will not be a cheap endeavor unless you have T-Mobile, which stinks in large swaths here.   And even then, a continuous connection here in the well-populated northern NJ...
Wait till they cart out the inflatable rat...  
Here's something else I noticed...if you use an external USB DAC for higher quality headphone or two channel listening, players such as Pure Music, Amarra Symphony, or Bit Perfect can't pass the Apple Music files to the DAC....they either remain paused, or play thought the computer speakers only
Yes, it is either not well thought out or more nefarious then I'd like to think Apple is...
There's not a single answer. On your computer (iTunes), your personal local music remains on your computer. If you enable iTunes in the Cloud, your personal music is uploaded to the cloud, and STREAMS to your iOS devices. You no longer can sync your music locally to your devices. You must stream even your own music. Enabling iTunes in the Cloud lets to store Apple Music for offline listening If you do not enable iTunes in the Cloud, you continue to sync normally, but you...
A line so brilliant I'm shocked Apple doesn't already use it in their Apple Music marketing... I am a lifelong Apple guy, as is the family, and I have easily had over two hundred Apple branded computers, iPhones, monitors, laser printers, network devices, and iPads pass though our front door over the past two decades. But when they make a mistake, even admirers need to call them out, perhaps even more forcefully. And Apple Music has a lot of issues, many of which should...
Obviously switching carriers is a silly answer, and one I doubt Apple would suggest. Besides, T-Mobile has damp ass coverage in northern NJ. And regardless of carrier, cellular is simply not reliable. Even wifi hopping sucks, as I use Optimum Online in my region, with long stalls or dropped connections for even browsing the web.My wife and daughter commute to NY, and between car, train and subway, they are more disconnected from their music than connected with this new...
I honestly cannot use Apple Music as much as I'd like to. The enforcement of using iTunes in the Cloud (if you wish to set Apple Music to  "Make Available Offline") is so fundamentally wrong I really have a tough time understanding how this is acceptable to many.   For if you choose this option, everything, including your own ripped/acquired elsewhere music, is now in the cloud and not on your iPhone and you are forced to stream everything.  Yes, if you "merge" in the...
I think a lot will be about stronger app development. If the tablets are primarily being used as a lighter, cheaper replacement for a laptop (email, browsing the web...), then cheaper alternatives will make sense. But if there is better app development either company specific or for verticals, the benefit of the iOS platform will become more clear.   I use a lot more apps on my iPhone than my iPad, especially when it comes to web content. On a smartphone, browsing the...
