Apple employees are getting some nice gifts from their bosses for the holiday season. A new report says that they received a nine-month subscription to Apple Music as part of their holiday gift, along with a free set of urBeats headphones.

MacRumors reports that Apple's iTunes leader Eddy Cue revealed the news about the free Apple Music gift in a video message to employees this morning:

Valued at $90, the Apple Music subscription paired with the urBeats headphones makes Apple's 2015 gift to its employees one of the most generous the company has offered in recent years. Apple's holiday gifts go out to all of its employees around the world, encompassing Cupertino, satellite offices, and each of its retail locations.

The gift is certainly an impressive gesture for Apple to give to its many workers at the end of a busy 2015 for the company.

  • Yeeeey! They got a $90 gift that cost Apple a fraction of that. What amazing gifts!
  • @kingweb
    apple treats their employees Very well. I don't want the beats headphones they gave me.
    I would offer to let you have them Free. but since they didn't cost me anything, you wouldn't appreciate them.
    i'll just throw them in the garbage instead since I will never use them.
  • Good choice. That's were they belong
  • Don't. I'll take them. Haha. Sent from the iMore App
  • It's more than my job gives me... Which is 0$
  • I love my Apple gadgets (iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch, Macbook Pro and iPad Air 2). That being said, Apple Music is terrible. Spotify is much better at the same price point.
  • I agree with you. Apple Music is horrible. I prefer Spotify as well. Sent from the iMore App

  • I'm honestly surprised they don't get them free as part of employment.
  • I'm an Apple employee, and I was shocked when we didn't. Although I'm a fan of the free 200gb of iCloud storage.
