Spotify has criticized Apple’s announcement of an all-in-one subscription bundle that includes its rival Apple Music. The company said that Apple was misusing its dominant position to push its own services.
It is worth mentioning here that Apple One bundle includes Apple Arcade, TV+, iCloud, and most importantly Music for $14.95.
“We call on competition authorities to act urgently to restrict Apple’s anti-competitive behavior, which if left unchecked, will cause irreparable harm to the developer community and threaten our collective freedoms to listen, learn, create, and connect,” the music streaming company said in a statement.
On the other hand, the iPhone maker said the bundle is aimed at existing users of its services and that “customers can discover and enjoy alternatives to every one of Apple’s services.”
Last June, the Cupertino-based company announced that Apple Music had topped 60 million subscribers.
