Apple Music will stream at 256kbps, while Spotify offers three speeds - from 310kbps all the way down to 96kbps on mobile devices. I stream heavily on Spotify at 96kbps and it doesn't eat a ton of data compared to other services I've used in the past (Google Play Music). Has anyone seen if Apple Music will offer other bitrates besides the 256kbps? I'm definitely doing the 3-month trial, but I'm concerned that I might eat a ton more data streaming over cellular than I do with Spotify. Too bad I don't have wifi access at work. :/ With Spotify I download music playlists for offline as well, but have lately been streaming more, as I'm enjoying the variety of new curated stations. I'm guessing I'll enjoy those same curated stations with Apple Music as well, thus more streaming than downloading. It'll be fun finding out on Tuesday though!
