However, Apple are no strangers to competition, with the recent launch of Apple Music seeing their portfolio of products and services continuing to encroach on rival’s territory. While this competition may turn ugly, for non-partial observers or blood-thirsty fanatics, it will certainly be a fascinating spectacle. While marketing is bred from competition, competition also breeds innovation.
