Key Apple Music/ Beats 1 director Ian Rogers leaves Apple

Apple Music and Beats 1 lead Ian Rogers has suddenly left Apple 2 months since the Apple Music launch. Although Apple Music app has actually received some criticism, Roger’s primary responsibility, Beats 1, has gotten much crucial honor and has actually been extensively praised, so it is surprising to see a resignation out of the director.

The Financial Times initially reported the departure, which has now been validated by Apple.


Prior to joining Apple, Ian Rogers was CEO of Beats Music. The report frames the resignation as unforeseen, with sources claiming Ian Rogers has signed up with a brand-new European business in an unconnected market. Reception to the Apple Music service has been excellent, but somewhat muted.

Apple revealed 11 million people had signed up to the music membership trial. However, the actual success of Apple Music won’t be known up until users’ totally free trials end and individuals have to begin paying $ 9.99 monthly for the service.
