Apple Music has more subscribers than ever, but it still can’t catch up to Spotify
Apple Music still has a ways to go before catching up with Spotify, but Apple's streaming music service is still growing slowly but surely. As part of a wide-ranging feature on Apple's ongoing efforts in the music space, Billboard relays that Apple Music now boats 30 million paying subscribers. As a point of reference, the last time we heard Apple disclose subscriber figures was back in June when Tim Cook said Apple Music had 27 million subscribers.
All told, 30 million subscribers isn't too shabby given that Apple Music didn't even launch until late June of 2015, but it's still a far cry from the 60 million paying users on Spotify. Taking into account non-paying users, Spotify boasts that it has upwards of 140 million users.
