Apple iPhone and iPad owners can now access the Apple Music streaming service with the launch of the iOS 8.4 update.
The update is now available in the UK and for those on the iOS 8.3 version of iOS the update is 173MB in size.
Apple's notes for the update tout Apple Music as a "revolutionary music service, 24/7 global radio and a way for fans to connect with their favourite artists."
The iOS 8.4 update also includes several bug fixes including one for the text message bug that could crash iPhones which came to light just over a month ago.
Apple Music touted the arrival of the service in a Facebook post on Monday: "We can't wait to share our new product with you, but first things first, update! This is Apple Music. And it's just the beginning."
The launch of iOS 8.4 also see the firm's Beats 1 radio station go live, offering a 24/7 streaming music station headed by several DJs, including Zane Lowe.
Apple Music will launch with the same 25,000-song library limit as iTunes Match. Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president for software and services, revealed on Twitter that this limit will rise to 100,000 when iOS 9 is released.
Apple Music launches with a free three-month trial period, something that may appeal to consumers but almost alienated the music community as artists were not to be paid during the trial period.
An intervention from pop star Taylor Swift led to a public announcement in which Apple made a dramatic U-turn.

"Apple will always make sure that artists are paid," he said. "#AppleMusic will pay artists for streaming, even during the free trial period."
