Spotify is unhappy with Apple. Again!

Spotify is unhappy with Apple. Again!

Spotify is unhappy with Apple. Again. But this time, the streaming-music service has turned up the volume on its latest gripe by alleging that the Cupertino, Calif., company rejected an update to its iOS app. The supposed defect in that release? It will no longer let listeners sign up for Spotify’s premium service through iOS’s in-app purchasing system, a mechanism that gives Apple 30 percent of the proceeds for the first year of a subscription. And the London-based service seems cranky enough to have circulated its letter of complaint to Apple (AAPL) among Capitol Hill types, Recode’s Peter Kafka reported Thursday. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) may be among them. In a speech Wednesday about the economic power of some tech companies, she said, “Apple has placed conditions on its rivals that make it difficult for them to offer competitive streaming services.”
