Spotify COMES FOR Apple

Facts that show Apple doesn’t play fair

01  Apple Charges a Discriminatory Tax:

Apple requires that certain apps pay a 30% fee for use of their in-app purchase system (IAP) – as is their prerogative. However, the reality is that the rules are not applied evenly across the board. Does Uber pay it? No. Deliveroo? No. Does Apple Music pay it? No. So Apple gives the advantage to its own services.

02  Apple Won’t Let Us Share Spotify Deals We Know You’d Love:

If we choose not to use IAP (the only payment option on iOS), Apple, in return, bars us from communicating directly with our customers who access Spotify via Apple platforms. Apple won’t let us share awesome deals and promotions — like 99c for three months of Spotify Premium. And we aren’t just talking about what we are allowed to do on the app. Worse yet, they don’t even let us email offers after you register your account, claiming we are circumventing their rules.

03  Apple Doesn’t Allow You to Upgrade to Spotify Premium With Ease:

If users want to upgrade from our Free service to Premium, great, we’d love to have them! But Apple bars us from offering that option in our app, instead, forcing users to take multiple steps of going to a browser or desktop. Some of our users don’t even have a desktop. And to top it off, we can’t even tell them that or point them in the right direction. You have to figure it out all on your own.

04  Apple Rejects Our App Enhancements:

We love making improvements and introducing new features to Spotify. But where Apple thinks that our app doesn’t abide by their unilaterally imposed restrictions, it routinely rejects bug fixes and app enhancements that would improve user experience and the app’s functionality – leading fans to believe our app and tech abilities are sub par. Nothing could be further from the truth. And of course Apple never puts any obstacles in front of its own Apple Music app.

05  Apple Won’t Let You Access Spotify on All Your Devices:

We are all about ubiquity (being there for you wherever and whenever you want). And Spotify is lucky to be available for fans around the world on nearly every other speaker – except for Apple’s. Apple won’t allow us to be on HomePod and the definitely won’t let us connect with Siri to play your jams. And don’t forget about the Apple Watch. We were ready to be on devices months before Apple would even give us a shot – limiting your experience and choice. Of course, you can play Apple Music though.

Wow, they really went downhill as a company after Jobs left. This quote he made about IBM says it all. He would be ashamed of the company today.

Spoiler

 "It appears IBM wants it all. Apple is perceived to be the only hope to offer IBM a run for its money. Dealers, initially welcoming IBM with open arms, now fear an IBM-dominated and controlled future. They are increasingly and desperately turning back to Apple as the only force that can ensure their future freedom. IBM wants it all and is aiming its guns on its last obstacle to industry control: Apple. Will Big Blue dominate the entire computer industry? The entire information age? Was George Orwell right about 1984?''

I'm glad they're doing this. Apple is unfairly trying to gain a monopoly by limiting their "open" UI. Also, if you haven't updated your Spotify app, you totally should. Their new UI is beautiful.

That’s how businesses work honey, you want your app on apple products? Then you have to agree to their terms lol 

Stop crying about it Spotify, apple regulates a lot of companies for them to adapt and push their business. 

Why don’t you start paying more to your Artists like apple does? Why not talk about that? Reason why Gaga is partnered with Apple :vegas:

“For every 1,000 plays, an unsigned artist can earn $6.40 from Apple Music and $3.80 from Spotify, but YouTube only pays out $0.60 per 1,000 streams. Signed artists have the opportunity to earn more from each platform, $7.30 from Apple Music, $4.40 from Spotify and just $0.70 from Youtube for every 1,000 plays”

Apple is trying to create a monopoly. If they continue taking 30% of revenue from Spotify, refuse to let people to listen to Spotify on their speakers and make it impossible for Spotify to update the app then the only music app left will be Apple. There's no difference in price between Apple and Spotify right now so in the short term consumers consumers wouldn't worse off, but if Spotify leaves the App Store then quite quickly you're going to see Apple raising prices. If iPhones users no longer have a choice then Apple can raise the monthly price to $12.99 and there's nothing consumers could do to stop them.

I have a MacBook and iPhone but I'm not thirteen years old so I don't blindly defend a huge international business

Yeah using Spotify on iOS has always been a hassle and I should’ve figured out why. :neyde:
