Operating system iOS 8.4 shows a record for a minor update rate of spread. For this you need to thank a new streaming music service Apple Music, which the audience, according to the publication HITS Daily Double, already broke the mark of 10 million users.
Presumably, the source of this information is very Apple, although the recent announcement of quarterly reporting CEO Tim Cook (Tim Cook) was limited to only mention of “millions and millions” of subscribers. Perhaps Apple Music team does not want to openly share their successes before the end of the three-month trial period. Only then it will be clear what part of the users would not switch to competing services, including shareware.
Last month, Spotify announced the achievement of strips 20 million paying subscribers. The total audience of service is about 75 active members.
Add that last week the US Federal Trade Commission launched an investigation against Apple Music. The Office will check whether the harm is not an American corporation other music services, by charging 30% commission if paid subscription through the App Store brand and forcing competitors to increase the value of the 30-day access to music from $ 10 to $ 13.
