After launching at the tail end of June 2015, Apple Music has reportedly hit a major milestone in its existence.
Sources speaking to the Financial Times say that Apple Music now has 10 million paying subscribers, a number that took Spotify six years to hit. Apple declined to comment on the report. To compare, Spotify says that it has more than 20 million subscribers.
While it took Spotify much longer to hit the 10 million subscriber mark than it took Apple Music, Apple’s service has a couple of advantages over Spotify. For example, streaming music is much more popular with consumers now than it was years ago. Plus, Apple Music comes preinstalled with iOS devices, and it offers a three-month trial that’ll automatically turn into a paid sub unless you turn off automatic renewal. All that said, Apple Music is doing well for the company, and I’m sure that Tim Cook and Co. are happy with the numbers that it’s put up in the six months since its launch.
Have you tried Apple Music? If so, what do you think of the service?
