Apple Music and Sonos Partner to ‘Beat Silence’ in New Ad

Apple Music and Sonos have partnered to create a new ad that was shown during tonight’s Grammy Music Awards. The commercial comes days after Apple Music officially launched on Sonos, allowing Sonos customers to stream Apple Music content and direct access to Apple Music features like For You, Radio and My Music.

The ad features musical artists Killer Mike, Matt Berninger and Annie Clark using Apple Music on Sonos speakers to „defeat silence“ in their homes. The ad and its stars argue that sharing loud music in your home can promote creativity and happiness. Previously, Sonos conducted a study a study on the positive effects of music listening in the home. The study, which used an Apple Music subscription paired with a Sonos speaker, found that families who regularly listened to music in their home spent 67 percent more time together, ate meals together more often and other positive effects.

Streaming Apple Music on Sonos speakers can enabled by selecting „Add Music Services“ from a Sonos controller app, selecting the Apple Music logo and logging into the service. Either an Apple Music subscription or free trial are required.

T-Mobile Offers AT&T Customers 128GB iPhone 6s for $200 Off to Switch

T-Mobile has announced a third „Un-carrier Unwrapped“ holiday promotion that offers AT&T customers a 128GB iPhone 6s for the same price as a 16GB model, which is a $200 savings.

The offer is valid for AT&T, GoPhone and Cricket postpaid and prepaid customers that switch a phone number to a T-Mobile Simple Choice postpaid plan between December 4 and December 13.

AT&T customers can combine the offer with T-Mobile’s Carrier Freedom promotion, which provides up to $650 towards a balance owing or to pay off early termination fees (ETFs) with an eligible device trade-in.

T-Mobile is also offering AT&T customers that switch up to half off its lineup of financed in-store accessories:

That could mean as much as a $125 discount on the hottest mobile gifts, like the latest smartwatches, UE Boom and JBL Bluetooth speakers, top-of-the-line headphones, Fitbit fitness trackers, Guitar Hero Live for iOS and more.

This limited time offer is part of T-Mobile’s monthlong „Un-carrier Unwrapped“ holiday promotion that began with three months of free unlimited LTE data for all Simple Choice postpaid customers and a $200 bill credit for Sprint customers.

T-Mobile plans to unveil additional „gifts“ over the next few weeks, with a new gift coming at least once per week. T-Mobile CEO John Legere recently confirmed on Twitter that Verizon customers will receive their „Un-carrier Unwrapped“ gift soon.

T-Mobile also recently announced that Music Freedom now supports 11 new services: Aud.io, Dash Radio, DatPiff, Jango, KCRW, Noon Pacific, Radio Danz, SomaFM, Spinrilla, StreamOn and TuneIn Premium.
