Apple Gifts Retail Employees With Apple Music Subscription

Apple last week provided all of its employees with urBeats earphones from the Beats by Dr. Dre product lineup as part of an annual holiday gift, and today iTunes chief Eddy Cue told Apple employees they would also receive a free nine-month subscription to Apple Music.

Cue shared the news in a video message that went out to employees this morning. Employees will receive an Apple Music promo code later this month, which will allow them to activate their free subscriptions.

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.

In addition to being a nice perk for employees, offering an Apple Music subscription to all of its employees will have benefits for Apple, as it will allow retail workers to familiarize themselves with the service so they can better explain and recommend it to customers.

Oh for goodness sakes. Most companies give their staff nothing. I bet you guys throw your toys across the room at your mother on Christmas morning because they just aren't good enough for you. Grow up!.

The subscription is only for nine months because that's about how long the urBeats earphones will last. :D

The Apple I once admired is looking rather worn and tattered.

I would love to work for a company that awesome! I'm a huge fan of Apple Music as it stands. Just superb in every way. I use iCloud Music library for about 17000 tracks.
