Apple Music has raised over 11 million users already


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.
