Today’s major news on Apple is the departure of its design Guru Jony Ive who is leaving the company to start his own new firm after 27 years of service. As the company tries to digest their big loss, their software plows ahead. In an interview with French News Site Numerama, Eddy Cue who is a big Apple honcho revealed that the company has gained over 60 million Apple Music subscribers.

Apple has the tendency to announce its list of subscribers every time when they cross an additional 10 million mark. Last time, when the company declared about its subscribers, it was 50 million.

But now the company’s music service is well past the halfway market. It is getting closer to surpass Spotify which currently has 100 million subscribers.

Apple Music was launched in 2015 and since then it has gained 60 million subscribers globally. Eddy Cue has said:

“In the Apple ecosystem, Apple music is the number one streaming service.”

Back in 2018, the subscriber number was only 40 million. According to a report, Apple Music has more paid users than Spotify in the US. This was reported by GSM Arena late on Thursday.

Apple Music gained 10 million subscribers in the first six months when it was launched for the first time in 2015. The subscriber number went up to 20 million by the end of December in 2016. There has been a steady increase in the number of subscribers since the launch of the app.

Apple Music had over 50 million paid subscribers in January when Spotify has already reached the 75 billion mark. This was stated by iPhone make.

The Cupertino based company is going to revamp the way subscribers access Apple Music in its latest Mac OS Catalina update.

Following the price cut by other music streaming services such as Gaana in India and like JioSaavn, Apple Music is now offering a subscription for Rs 99 per month. The previous price was Rs 120 per month.

This new monthly plan by Apple Music has made it cheaper than Spotify which charges Rs 119 per month.
