Apple Music ticks up to 13 million subscribers

During Apple's Q2 2016 earnings call today, CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple Music now boasts 13 million paid subscribers. For those keeping track, that's a jump of 2 million subscribers over the 11 million that Apple reported in February.

While still behind the 30 million subscribers boasted by competitor Spotify, Apple Music is still off to a solid start in its first 10 months thanks to a combination of strong exclusive offerings and the backing of artists like Drake and St. Vincent.

The news comes as Apple's services revenue was a particularly notable bright spot in a quarter where the company saw its first year-over-year dip in iPhone sales in quite some time. In total, however, the company still managed to bring in $50.6 billion in revenue and $10.6 billion in profit.
