Apple is reportedly talking with big name record labels to provide a subscription-based music service that will give unlimited access to songs for a monthly fee.

According to the New York Post, which cites several unnamed sources, the company's iTunes boss Eddy Cue has already spoken with music labels about how such a service could be implemented.

The Post cites sources that claim such a service could have tiered pricing ranging between $10 and $15.

But Apple is supposedly still working out how much music would be included in each tier, as well as other outstanding issues with the reported service, which the firm has declined to comment on. ®
