For now, until the official Sonos system launches, Apple Music listeners will need to use a workaround to get their tuned streaming off the iPad, iPhone or Mac. It also includes utlizing an Apple TV or an AirPort Express to get the music streaming. And those on standard Bluetooth-equipped wireless speakers, Apple Music will work just fine when streaming music to those accessories.
