iOS 7 and iTunes Radio Today

iOS 7

Apple is releasing the incredible-looking iOS 7 update today, with over 200 new features, including iTunes Radio, a free, streaming radio service. Historically, 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT has been their preferred timing for OS update releases, hopefully that will hold true for today. Very interested to see how iTunes Radio works, and how it compares with Spotify, Pandora, etc.

All cloud storage services should follow suit. Read more:
