    By the way Apple Music now works for android devices, so no need to switch

    TBH I am happy with Spotify, all of my kit is Apple but I don't agree with one company trying to monopolise the tech space. Diversity is good for business and that's why I prefer Spotify and other non Apple cloud based services so I'm not tied in. I have last years MBP but when I next upgrade it probably won't be a MacBook unless they stop taking the p!ss with their pricing!
