Peter Kafka, writing for Re/code:
Beats updated its iPhone app today, and now lets users subscribe to the $10 a month service from within the app, using iTunes’ billing system. That means Beats, and the music labels that license their stuff to the service, will give up $3 a month on every subscription sold through iTunes.
Beats Music is willing to take a 30% hit just to sell their same subscription, but through an in-app purchase dialog. Speaks volumes about the purchasing power of iOS users.
