Apple announced that it has accumulated more than 100 million songs on Apple Music, which is a 100,000-fold increase compared to the 1,000 songs included in iTunes and the first iPod 21 years ago. At present, it has also greatly changed the traditional music usage mode.
Since its official launch on June 30, 2015, Apple stated that the Apple Music service has been available in 167 countries and regions around the world. At the same time, more than 20,000 singers and songwriters provide new songs every day, making Apple Music more and more rich every day.
With such a scale of development, Apple
emphasizes that Apple Music has changed the structure of the music production and distribution business in the past 20 years. Compared to the 1960s, when only 5,000 new albums were released each year, the music industry is now booming due to digital transformation. Even because of the streaming format, more people can be exposed to different types of music, and more music singers and creators can have extensive development opportunities.However, Apple emphasizes that even though the current collection of music songs is quite large, it will still insist on selecting songs through manual arrangement, so that the recommended music content can be more humane, and even easier to establish the connection between music fans and singers and creators.
