According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the number of Apple Music users has exceeded 50 million, which includes pay subscribers and users in free trial. Cook released the data in an interview with Bloomberg TV. 5 weeks ago, apple Service Director Eddy Cue revealed that Apple Music had 48 million users, including 40 million pay subscribers and 8 million free users. At present, Apple Music is still the second largest music player in the world, behind Spotify.
By the year March 31, 2018, Spotify had 75 million paid users and the total active users were at least 170 million. Of course, unlike Apple Music, Spotify offers free packages, but there are advertisements. In the last quarter, the revenue of Apple's service business was as high as 9 billion 100 million US dollars, and this growth mainly depended on Apple Music.
