Apple Music Surpasses 60 Million Paid Subscribers Says Eddy Cue

Apple Music has hit another milestone, surpassing 60 million paid subscribers, according to executive Eddy Cue, speaking with French publication Numerama (via Music Business Worldwide).

Apple previously confirmed Apple Music had hit 56 million paid subscribers back in December. Streaming music rival Spotify announced back in April it had hit 100 million paid subscribers globally.

According to Cue, he said he was pleased with Apple Music’s subscriber numbers, adding Apple is always working to perfect the streaming music service across devices.

iOS 13 will debut time-synced lyrics in Apple Music, essentially adding a karaoke feature. Cue specifically mentioned Apple employees put in these lyrics themselves and they are not from a third-party company. Google was recently accused of stealing lyrics from Genius, which the search engine blamed on a third-party.
