Folks in China don't have access to the record-breaking iPhone 6s until October, but Apple's making sure they they'll be able to get their hands on iBooks, Apple Music and iTunes Movies ahead of that. Those services are available starting today, and Music in particular is getting some very region-specific special treatment. The streaming catalog includes work from Eason Chan, Li Ronghao, JJ Lin and G.E.M.. Apple writes that there will be a raft of movies from Chinese studios too, saying that this is the first time that its customers in the country will be able to jump into the ecosystem. There's a three-month trial period, which gives way to a 10 RMB/month subscription. Family plans are part of the deal as well. And if you don't own an Apple handset but still want in on its music service, Music will hit Android phones later this fall.
