After yesterday’s presentation by Apple, many were unhappy, in including music streaming service Spotify. But, in in contrast of the rest, the Swedish company is not outraged at all lack of new iPhone 12 on presentation.
What’s the matter
Spotify in this time protests against the Apple One single subscription announced yesterday. As a reminder, this is a subscription that combines all of the company’s services: Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade, Apple News + and Apple Fitness +.
“IN once again Apple is using its dominant position and unfair methods to put competitors and consumers in a disadvantage in favoring their own services. we urge antitrust authorities to take urgent action to curb Apple’s anticompetitive behavior that, if left unchecked, would irreparably harm the developer community and will threaten our collective freedoms“, – said in Spotify’s statement.
Apple not made myself wait a long time and rolled out the answer:
“Users can discover alternatives to any Apple service and use them. we introducing Apple One as an easy way to access all the range of our services in as part of a single profitable subscription. The package is ideal for those who love and uses our services and wants to get more for less money. Also some services included in Apple One available for use on third party devices, and you you can cancel them in any moment“
By the way, Spotify is no longer first opposes Apple: in first of all, the company is accused of aggressive promotion of Apple Music in App Store.
