Apple iCloud streaming service hinted at by job listing

Apple to launch iCloud streaming service in the near future

A new job posting by Cupertino tech giant Apple has created further speculation that the iPhone and iPad maker is set to launch a cloud-based music streaming service.

The advertisement, posted on the company’s official website, has announced the search for a “Media Streaming Engineering Manager” a position that has created a storm of rumours around the imminent arrival of the much mooted iCloud service.

With the position to be filled within Apple’s Interactive Media Group in Santa Clara Valley, a unit that works predominantly on iTunes, Safari and QuickTime, Apple has revealed it is looking for a candidate who will be “an excellent engineering manager to join our team and help develop our media streaming engine for our iOS, Mac OS X, and Windows products."

Other CV additions required from a successful applicant include previous experience designing media streaming systems.

With Apple believed to have already finished building its cloud-based music streaming service, the iPod manufacturer has recently been reported to have signed two major record labels to its upcoming iCloud service, a system that will allow users to store and stream their own music remotely as well as offering Spotify-esque subscription options.

Will Apple’s mooted iCloud service be the next dominate force in the digital music market or will the likes of Spotify and Google Music steal its thunder? Share your thoughts with us via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
