In March 2019, Spotify made a complaint to the European Commission, as Apple did not allow Siri and HomePod to launch the music streaming service. In June 2020, the European Commission initiated an investigation over the App Store’s 30% commission fee due to a complaint from Spotify and Rakuten.
Spotify has blamed Apple for abusing its dominant market position by announcing an all-in-one subscription bundle including Apple Music on Tuesday.
On 15 September, Apple introduced a single subscription to its Apple One services. It will include Apple Music, Apple TV, Apple Arcade and Apple News, among others.
According to Apple’s senior vice president Eddy Cue, the number of Apple Music subscribers surpassed 60 million in June 2019, while Spotify had 286 million subscribers in April 2020.
