Apple Inc. said Wednesday that it is buying Beats Electronics LLC for $3 billion to bring a music-streaming service, high-end headphones and music-industry connections to the technology giant as it seeks to reignite growth under Chief Executive Tim Cook. Apple said it would pay $2.6 billion in cash and $400 million in equity for Beats Music, a subscription music-streaming business, and Beats Electronics, which makes pricey headphones, speakers and audio software.

Mr. Iovine, a longtime friend of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, said the two men’s titles would simply be “Jimmy and Dre.” They will work with both Apple’s electronics and music-streaming divisions, spending as much time at Apple’s Cupertino, Calif., campus as necessary, while serving more broadly to bridge the cultural divide between technology and entertainment industries.
