Beats is also well known for their headphones. Apple is considered as a reasonable prospect , and the company is looking at seriously to develop their design in future models . However, it is likely that Beats will remain an independent brand and the subscription has been has been  dropped to $99.99 and extended the 7-days free trial to 14 days.

Apple confirmed that Dr. Dre and Jimmy Lovine will get senior positions in the corporation . In particular, Lovine will become the new head of the musical direction of the corporation.
