Something to note: competition wise, Spotify doesn’t have a 30% App Store profit handicap compared to Apple Music, it has a 60% one.

Spotify doesn’t just forfeit 30% of their App Store revenue, they pay this directly to Apple - so the relative handicap is doubled.

No, Apple doesn’t get all its money from Spotify. For Apple it’s insignificant.

And of course it only applie for in app purchases, if you browse to Spotify.com on you iphone and pay there, Apple doesn’t get a penny.

Most of these claims are dubious at best. Bunch of cry-babies.
