The deals mean that top artists like Taylor Swift, Adele, Lizzo, and others will continue to have their music streamed on Apple’s service. However, the deals reportedly don’t include a provision to bundle Apple Music with other services like Apple TV+.
It’s possible that Apple will start with a small bundle, like News+ and TV+, and add services like Apple Music at a later time if a deal can be made with record labels. Companies are wary to be included in a bundle because they would potentially make less money. For example, Apple already takes a 50% from news publishers in News+.
