Yesterday, on March 3rd, Apple created an official support account on Twitter. It took one day to get 100K followers and now the number of people has increased by another 30 thousands.
Although company has separate accounts for its different services, like Apple Music or App store profile, it didn’t have a general one that can be used for basic questions.
Apple has recently launched its streaming music service called Apple Music as well as the Beats 1 radio in Taiwan. The launch took place nearly a week after the debut of the service in Turkey.
The Taiwanese customers can use Apple Music for three months for free. Once the trial ends, they will have to pay about $4.50 USD each month. The family plan is a bit more expensive.

It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Most of the articles this week deal with the widely-rumored 4-inch iPhone, the next-generation Apple Watch as well as iOS 9.3. There’re also some posts that deal with iPhone sales and Apple’s streaming music service.
Earlier this week, a rumor appeared on the Internet suggesting that Apple was developing a special tool for Android switchers. The tool was supposed to be used to transfer contacts, messages, music, videos etc. from a compatible iPhone to an Android phone. The rumor was shared by The Telegraph and became quite popular among the reporters writing tech news.
In reality, Apple doesn’t plan to develop any tools for people switching from iPhones to Android devices. Apple spokesperson denied the rumor and claimed the company is focused only on those who switch from Google’s Android to iOS. This is the usual practice for large smartphone manufacturers.
According to the latest report from Financial Times, Apple Music now has more than 10 million active subscribers. This number includes users of all popular platforms, including iOS, Mac, PC, Android and Apple TV. Such result allowed Apple’s streaming music service to become the second largest in the world. The leader of the market is Spotify with 75 million active users and more than 20 million paying subscribers.
According to the latest report from reliable sources, Apple is currently working on new wireless earphones. The headphones are reportedly very small to fit into ears comfortably and feature a special noise-cancelling system for better user experience while making phone calls, listening to music or communicating with Siri. The headphones will be released under Beats brand and most likely hit the store shelves alongside the iPhone 7.
As noted by French reporters from a website called Consomac, back in November Apple filed several trademark applications for the following word marks: B2, B3, B4, B5, Beats Two, Beats Three, Beats Four, and Beats Five. The application is currently being reviewed by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The aforementioned trademark applications indicate that Apple may be planning to expand the Beats radio service in the near future.
In addition to urBeats earphones, Apple has also decided to give its employees nine months of free and unlimited Apple Music access as a holiday present. Such generous gifts have been officially announced by Apple SVP Eddy Cue in his recent video message to the company workers.
