Apple could be readying a bunch of new Beats radio stations to follow up on Beats 1.
Apple’s first live radio station, Beats 1, launched with the rollout of iOS 8.4 on June 30 earlier this year. It’s gone on to be one of the more successful parts of the new Apple Music package.
Back at the beginning of August, a report emerged claiming that Apple was working on up to five new Beats radio stations to accompany Beats 1. Apparently, the company has agreed rights with music labels to do just that without the need for further negotiation.
Now evidence of new trademark filings from Apple appear to have partially confirmed that earlier report.

Apple also filed trademarks for the logos for B2, B3, B4, and B5.
Of course, this could simply mean that Apple is protecting the names for possible future usage. But tied in with that earlier report, it seems likely that the company has a range of follow-up 24 hour radio stations in the works.
