Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) continues to trail Spotify (NYSE:SPOT) as the streaming music services race to add paid subscribers. However, AAPL just got a big boost, at least in the American market. Verizon (NYSE:VZ) announced that an Apple Music subscription will be included for free with several of its premium cellular plans.
Verizon Expands AAPL Partnership, Offers Free Apple Music for Premium Unlimited Plans
