According to the technology site The Verge, Apple wants major music labels to deny renewing a licence for Spotify. Apple thinks that this service produces music for nothing.
The report is now on the first place, before the planned relaunch of the Beats streaming service which appears to be Apple’s possession.
Spotify offers a premium tier which allows free-streaming without ads but majority of people tend to stream music for free.
It is said that Apple offered to pay Universal Music Group the money it receives from YouTube on terms that it stops allowing its music to be played on Spotify.
Last May Apple bought Beats Electronic for $3bn. It is the most expensive purchase in Apple’s history. The part of agreement between co-founder Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine was to join Apple.
Analysts say that while making new headphones, the only thing the company wants is the company’s music streaming service.
