2 b honest, my usage needs r better met by an android phoen so taht is why. --- Post Merged, Dec 12, 2017 --- I'm assuming that Apple Music is also unprofitable, but Apple the advantage Apple has is that Apple Music is just one piece of their entire business. So even if Apple Music is losing money, if it can still bring people to iPhone and get then further entrenched in the ecosystem, then Apple wins. Spotify, on the other hand, only has it's music. The issue is the record labels. They know that they have everyone bent over a barrel, and they charge accordingly.
