Apple Music up to 6.5 million subscribers In a new interview today, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced a milestone for the fledgling Apple Music service: 6.5 million paying subscribers.
Altogether, the service has 15 million total subscribers, a solid number for a service that has only been around since June. Keep in mind, Apple offers three free months to anybody who wants to try it, so the numbers are potentially inflated.

Cook said customers have been praising the human curation features of the platform and that he himself had been stuck listening to the same tracks over and over until he started using Apple Music.

The service launched with some issues, including a high-profile attack by the music industry over royalties but has since seemed to have settled into a groove.

I'm amazed at how many dumbasses partake in pay-for streaming music with so many that are free.........not to mention MP3 collections that everyone has.

Add to that..........even dumber for paying Apple for this saturated and redundant as well as played out service offering.
