Apple Music now has over 30 million subscribers

  Apple Music now has over 30 million subscribers Apple Music has surpassed 30 million subscribers, according to Billboard. The streaming service has picked up 10 million subscribers since December, and 3 million since WWDC back in June. Apple Music has managed to nearly keep pace with Spotify’s growth rate, racking up an average of 15 million subscribers per year, compared to 20 million for Spotify over the past two years. It’ll be tough for Apple to catch up with Spotify at this rate, but it seems like Jimmy Iovine realizes this.

The department is a part of India's commerce and industry ministry.

Apple has asked federal government officials for a range of tax and policy changes to help build out its iPhone assembly work in India.

It is seeking permission to open its own retail stores in India where it currently sells iPhones through resellers.

India has given Chinese smartphone maker Oppo the go-ahead to open its own single-brand retail stores, boding well for rivals like Apple, which are seeking similar approvals.
