Apple Music says it will never have a free tier like Spotify

Apple Music’s head of music publishing Elena Segal has confirmed that there will never be an Apple Music free tier.

Segal made the statement at a UK government hearing into the economics of music streaming.

“We don’t think that an ad-supported service can generate enough revenue to support a healthy overall ecosystem. And it would also really go against our fundamental values on privacy,” she said.
