Last month Sonos announced it was expanding its collaboration with Apple by bringing Sonos into Apple’s physical and online retail stores. Two of its most popular speakers — the PLAY:1 and PLAY:5 — were available 468 Apple Stores worldwide on October 5, and Apple’s online stores outside of the US starting November 2.
“Our expanded collaboration with Apple is a great example of our ongoing work with our full ecosystem of partners to make it easier than ever to listen to music out loud at home,” said Patrick Spence, president of Sonos. “Apple Music on Sonos is a powerful experience, one we’re proud to bring directly to Apple fans at Apple Stores worldwide.”
“This is a big deal — both for our companies, and for music lovers around the world who can now experience Sonos and Apple Music like never before. We know that the best way to discover Sonos is by experiencing it first-hand, which shoppers in 180 Apple Stores will be able to do, with a hands-on Sonos and Apple Music demo featuring a guided Sonos app experience on the iPad Pro.”
It wasn’t long ago that Apple Music joined Sonos as its exclusive partner in the connected home, creating experiences that only Sonos and Apple Music could provide– Beats 1 Radio in every room in the house, Apple Music exclusives like Frank Ocean in the kitchen, and Drake’s latest drops in the bedroom. With expanded collaboration, the Sonos whole home sound system with Apple Music’s curated playlists and personalized recommendations, tuned perfectly for your home.
