In a recent interview from Daring Fireball with Apple executives Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi, we finally got a confirmation of the number of subscribers that the Apple Music service has.
According to the Cue, Apple “just passed over 11 million Apple Music subscribers,” which was told to John Grubber on The Talk Show podcast as well as news that the company has over 782 million iCloud users, who upload billions of photos a week.
This is incredibly interesting as The Financial Time cited a source that claimed the service had 10 million subscribers back in January, which could show that the service is growing incredibly quickly.
If the service continues to grow like this, it could easily be the fastest growing service of the year or even the largest, given that Spotify currently has 20 million subscribers, it is not that far away from overtaking, given the amount of time Spotify had to build their service.
And not only that, the pair also announced that they are currently working to overhaul the Apple Remote app to allow the iPhone to work as a full replacement for the remote included with the Apple TV.
They also mentioned that there will be a new dictation feature in tvOS 9.2.
Of course we don’t yet know when any of this will reach the public.
Whilst we wait you can listen to the podcast at the source link below.
