The all-you-can-listen music subscription business just got even more competitive. Sony Entertainment Network head Tim Schaaff announced a plan to deliver an iPhone app for Sony’s Music Unlimited service in the next few months.

Until now, the service was available on Android devices, PCs and PlayStation, but Apple music lovers were left out. This puts the Sony service in a more competitive position with rivals Spotify, Rdio and Rhapsody, all of which have long offered Apple support. Surprisingly, though, there will only be a single iOS app, with an iPad version not part of the initial offering.

Another major change, which affects both the Android version of the service and the upcoming Apple flavor, is adding the ability to store music on your device instead of being limited to streaming it live online. Now premium Music Unlimited subscribers will be able to listen while flying, and down on the ground without eating up cellular bandwidth.

Like the competition, a full-featured Music Unlimited subscription runs $10 a month, with unlimited access to millions of songs. A free 30-day trial subscription is available at the Sony Entertainment Network.
