Apple has finally terminated the free iTunes Radio service

Apple has made some changes to iTunes Radio, bundling the collection of channels into Apple Music. Should you wish to tune in and enjoy some music through the feature, you'll now need to have an active Apple Music subscription. This move follows the company's earlier announcement that the free ad-supported service would be terminated.

Hitting the iTunes Radio option in the media suite will now take you to a screen asking you to join Apple Music. If you're not interested in paying out for Apple's premium music service, Beats 1 will remain freely available for listeners around the world. This could be related to the removal of iTunes Radio is related to Apple shutting down the iAd platform later this year.
