Apple has approved Spotify's iPhone app
Apple's rulling on the app has been eagerly anticipated as many see Spotify as a rival to Apple's dominant music store iTunes. Spotify has proved hugely popular in the UK since it launched in and commands around 8 million unique users in Europe. It's also expected to take the US by storm when it launches later this year.
Spotify founder Daniel Ek told the BBC: "We're not surprised but we're thrilled. We had a great dialogue with Apple from day one."
The app will be available to premium subscribers who pay £10 a month for an ad free version of Spotify. The company is expecting a sharp rise in premium subscribers, which would decrease its reliance on ad revenue.
