During their earnings call yesterday, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook announced not only the company’s financial situation, but also about the number of subscribers that the Apple Music streaming service has.
During the call, Cook revealed that the fledgeling service now has over 13 million subscribers, all of whom are paying customers.
What’s more, this is also an increase in total subscribers from the 11 million subscribers that they announced in March.
This comes after Apple first launched the streaming service in June of last year, so to have 13 million paying subscribers in that time is huge.
By comparison, Spotify recently revealed that they had 30 million subscribers.
Although that is larger than Apple’s it’s still quite impressive to see that Apple is only 17 million behind in such a short amount of time.
Of course, Apple did already have a large customer base ahead of Apple Music’s launch.
