Apple Music was launched on 30th July this year and yesterday Apple Executives shared numbers with USA Today.
Apple Music which is running a three month trial music trial which costs up to $9.99 in the US and $4.99 in other markets has been able to lock in 11 million subscribers within a period of 30 days.
“We’re thrilled with the numbers so far,” says Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet software and services, adding that of that sum 2 million have opted for the more lucrative family plan at $14.99 a month for up to six people.
This is a major leap for Apple Music considering that Spotify has been able to gather 20 million premium and 70 million trial subscribers within 8 years.
But I don’t think we should judge these numbers just yet considering that some users just love free things and we shall be waiting for a time when the trial period for majority of the users has expired.
