Now that Apple has decided to kill the headphone jack on the iPhone 7, it only makes sense that they’re doubling down on wireless audio support. And if you’re going to do that, you may as well partner up with some of the best smart speakers available today. Starting today, you’ll be able to pick up your Sonos speakers at the Apple Store.

Well, sort of. The selection of Sonos speakers is launching on Apple.com today (in the US) and they’ll be rolled out to the nearly 500 brick and mortar Apple Stores around the globe starting on October 5. Online availability will then be extended to the rest of the world starting on November 2. If you buy a Sonos speaker before the end of the year, they’ll throw in a free three-month subscription to Apple Music.

Of course, you can use the Sonos to stream more than Apple Music. It’s compatible with everything from Deezer to TuneIn, Spotify to Google Play Music, as well as content on your own network and with dozens of other streaming services. You may recall from my reviews that I really like both the second generation PLAY:5 speaker and the entry-level PLAY:1 speaker, so you can pick the system that best fits your needs and budget.

If you can’t wait for Sonos to show up in physical stores or in your region’s Apple online store, you can always buy them on Amazon. You just won’t get your three months of Apple Music.

Sonos Coming to an Apple Store Near You

At Sonos, we believe that music deserves a central place in our lives and in our homes.  Playing music out loud makes everything better–more profound, joyful, meaningful and affirming. The easier we make it to fill your home with music, the more people will listen.

We’re very excited to announce today that we’re making it easier than ever, by expanding our collaboration with Apple and bringing Sonos into Apple’s physical and online retail stores. Two of our most popular speakers — the PLAY:1 and PLAY:5 — are immediately available at Apple.com in the US today, at 468 Apple Stores worldwide on October 5, and Apple’s online stores outside of the US starting November 2.

Better still, those who buy a Sonos system at Apple retail stores or at Apple.com between today and Dec. 31 will receive a free three-month subscription to Apple Music.

“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 our expanded collaboration, we’re making it easier than ever to combine the Sonos whole home sound system with Apple Music’s curated playlists and personalized recommendations, tuned perfectly for your home.
