Changes ahead for Apple Music?

Originally launching last summer, Apple recently matched Spotify with a $4.99 per month deal for students.

The service has been dogged by more than a few complaints.

Along with issues with the general layout and confusing options, Apple confirmed that “an extremely small number” of Apple Music users have had music files removed from their computer without permission.

That problem was fixed with the introduction of iTunes 12.4.

Apple is also expected to unveil new changes to the service with iOS 10 and OS X 10.12 at WWDC next month.
