|Apple Wants To Acquire Jay-z's Tidal Music Service by TechPill: 1:38am On Jul 01, 2016|
Apple is reportedly considering an acquisition of Tidal. A music streaming service owned by rapper, producer and general mogul Jay Z.
Tidal was launched in 2014, focusing on high quality streaming audio service. And has since then maintain and secured exclusive streaming rights on high profile albums in order to compete with more larger rivals like Spotify and Apple's own Apple music service.
According to Wall Street Journal, Apple has been sniffing around with an interest to acquire Tidal to add it to its Portfolio. The terms of the rumor and whether the deal will pull through is yet unknown but the talk is still "ongoing" between the two side. Though Tidal executive denies the rumor when questioned by the Journal.
The major reason why Apple is really interested in Tidal is the fact that most high profiled artist like Kanye West, Madonna etc. and of course Beyonce now choose to use Tidal music service to launched their latest exclusive material rather than rivals such as Apple Music or Spotify.
Having said that, Tidal also offers high audio quality than many alternatives service. With $20/month subscription you will get a high quality audio tracks though you can get a cheaper $10/month subscription plan with a low quality playback.
However, there is an ongoing dispute between Apple and Spotify. Spotify is claiming that Apple recently rejected the company's IOS app update because spotify choose to remove the option for in-app subscription. Insisting that Apple is "causing grave harm" to both its business and customers.
Are you Apple Fans? what's you say on the Apple/Spotify dispute And the Acquisition.

Am a fan of Tidal and I think Jigga is doing a good job with it, so the competition is healthy for business. Tidal has changed the way we all listen to music for both artist and fans. I remember how Rihanna's album went platinum before even releasing it and if anybody has been paying attention y'all know that music on tidal gets better by the day. If apple buys Tidal it will just add to their monopoly of the online music business.
