Apple Says Spotify Is Breaking The Rules

Yesterday Spotify claimed it was being bullied by Apple. Today, we have a response from Apple saying that Spotify wants special treatment. Spotify head of communications Jonathan Prince doesn't seem to agree and the back and forth bickering continues.

"We find it troubling that you are asking for exemptions to the rules we apply to all developers and are publicly resorting to rumors and half-truths about our service," wrote Sewell. According to Sewell's letter to Spotify, the new update to Spotify's app would have let new customers sign up for the streaming-music service without paying Apple an in-app subscription fee -- one of Apple's App Store rules.
