Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift and Apple — Taylor Swift is featured in the September issue of Vanity Fair in a cover piece titled, ‘Taylor Swift Reveals How She Stood Up to Apple.’ In it, she revealed she was scared of a backlash against the open letter she wrote criticising Apple for not paying royalties to music streamerd during an Apple Music trial period, and surprised at the warm reaction it received. An example: “Apple treated me like I was a voice of a creative community that they actually cared about. And I found it really ironic that the multi-billion-dollar company reacted to criticism with humility, and the start-up with no cash flow [Spotify] reacted to criticism like a corporate machine.”

Apple’s ‘Beats 1: Replay’ brings full show replays to Connect— A recently activated Apple Music Connect feature called Beats 1: Replay allows fans to replay taped Internet broadcasts of their favorite shows, including those hosted by DJs Zane Lowe, Julie Adenuga and Ebro Darden.

Apple Music joins streaming services counted in influential Billboard charts — Music magazine Billboard has quietly added Apple Music to the list of streaming services factored into its music charts, which are often treated as the main gauge of popular music in the United States.
