Apple Music Could Be Threat to Spotify as iOS 8.4 is Adopted

According to mobile analytics startup Mixpanel, more than 38 percent of iOS mobile devices are now running iOS 8.4, Apple’s latest mobile operating system. That means a growing number of consumers now have access to a free trial of the new Apple Music service, reports VentureBeat. “Dangerous for Spotify,” said Suhail Doshi, Mixpanel’s chief exec. “That’s hundreds of millions of people who can get a free three-month trial with Apple Music.” While Spotify recently expanded to include videos and podcasts for its 75 million users, Apple Music could prove to be a threat to existing music services such as Spotify and Rdio.
