Warner Music is scheduled to be on board since April. This would allow Apple - offering a fully licensed cloud service - in contrast to rival Amazon and Google.

With an official launch date is expected to Apple's developer conference WWDC in June. The Cloud-service where you receive music directly from the network to a PC or smartphone, would complement the leading iTunes music platform. Apple's competitors and had obsolete with the launch of its services - but they closed off any new contracts with the music industry.
