Spotify warns of HUGE price rise that could add £35 onto your bill – and he’s blaming Apple for the rogue hike | The Sun

SPOTIFY has warned of a potential price hike for customers around the world – as a result of an ongoing spat with Apple.

The music streaming app’s boss claims that Apple takes too large a cut of its subscription fees, and may need to hit Brits with bigger monthly payments to stay profitable.

Any app available on the App Store has to pay Apple 30% commission on the sale – if it’s a digital item.

But Spotify’s chief exec believes this fee is simply too high, and has now floated the idea of charging subscribers more than the current £9.99 monthly fee.

“You can see us having no other choice than to accept the 30% fee put in place, which essentially would mean we would have to raise our prices for consumers all over the world,” Daniel Ek told the Financial Times.

He suggested that this gives Apple an “unfair benefit of being able to compete at much lower prices” with its own rival streaming service, Apple Music.
