After your first 4 months, the price is $10 per month.
Cancel anytime before the 4 months expire to avoid paying anything.
Apple's Music service obviously works well on an iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV since they are all made by Apple.
Using AirPlay, your Music app can send the streaming music to compatible A/V receivers, speakers, etc.
However Apple Music may not work natively with Google Home and Amazon Echo speakers, since they already use their own streaming music services (Google Play, YouTube Red, and Amazon Music), and already have partnerships with Pandora and Spotify.
So, you cannot use your voice to play Apple Music directly on a Google Home and Amazon Echo, but you can play Apple Music through Airplay, Bluetooth, and other speaker play features from your iPhone or iPad.

- iPhone Battery Replacement for $29
If you bought an iPhone in 2016 or earlier and your phone has been running slow, you can get a fresh new battery for $29 installed.
Rarely will any phone maker replace a battery for this cheap.
Here is our suggestion on the best way to get the deal:
Call Apple Tech Support at 800-694-7466 and request a battery diagnostic and $29 replacement.
There's no advantage to having the diagnostic done at a store, and will take more time out of your day.
According to TechCrunch, your phone will qualify if its battery tests below 80% of its original capacity.
Phones over 15 months old should be this way.
The rep will schedule a date/time for your battery to be available for install at an Apple Store (probably a 2 week backorder due to high demand).
Be sure to backup your phone using iTunes on a computer or iCloud, before having the work done at the Apple Store.
If Apple breaks your phone and replaces the equipment at no charge, you will need that backup to preserve your contacts, photos, apps, and settings.
Apple says this $29 battery replacement program will last through December, according to MacWorld.
So if your iPhone 6 or newer works fine now, know that you may have the $29 new battery anytime this year.

It's a discontinued model with specs similar to cheaper TVs, but is one of the best deals if you want a Sony brand.
HP DeskJet 3637 Inkjet Printer/Scanner for $30.
At this price, replacing the ink will cost more than the printer.
Note that HP ink replacement will be more expensive, since there are very few third-party manufacturers who make compatible ink for HP printers.
