“Apple Music might be the most un-Apple product the company has ever released,” Michael Simon writes for Macworld. “That’s not to say it’s not great. A little Spotify, a dash of I Heart Radio, and a few cups of Beats: Apple Music is more of an amalgam of the best parts of other services than a uniquely Apple product.”
