Apple Music celebrates 100 million songs


Apple Music has hit more than 100 million songs on the platform.

Speaking in a press release, an Apple spokesperson said: “Twenty-one years on from the invention of iTunes and the debut of the original iPod, we’ve gone from 1,000 songs in your pocket to 100,000x that on Apple Music. It’s phenomenal growth by any metric. The entire history, present, and future of music is at your fingertips or voice command.

“One hundred million songs — it’s a number that will continue to grow and exponentially multiply. But it’s more than just a number, representing something much more significant — the tectonic shift in the business of music making and distribution over these past two decades.”

Appel Music launched back in June 2015 and since then has become one of the world’s biggest players in the streaming market. Apple revolutionized music with iTunes and took the brave decision to replace its iTunes Store with the streaming service. Since then, hundreds of millions of iPhone users have subscribed to the service, and it now remains the second-most popular streamer in the world, behind Europe’s Spotify.

Apple is reportedly planning to introduce an all-new version of Apple Music later this year, called Apple Music Classical, with a dedicated app and at no additional fee to consumers.
