At the WALL STREET JOURNAL Technology Conference, APPLE CEO TIM COOK said, "More than 6.5 million people have signed up for APPLE MUSIC since the $10-a-month streaming music service launched a little more than three months ago," reports CNET. COOK ALSO NOTED that another 8.5 million users are participating in the music service's 90-day free trial.
"I'm finding personally that I'm discovering a whole lot of music that I wasn't listening to before," COOK said. "I think it's fabulous, and to have over 15 million on there, and 6.5 million in the paid category, I'm really happy about it. And I think the runway here is really good."
He added, "If we piss a few people off, I think at least they'll say, 'They made a great product, and I may not agree with this or that, but I respect that they are trying to leave things better than they found it.' At least, that's what I hope they say."
