Updated Data

Our goal with Apple Music for Artists is to present accurate data to you as quickly as possible by updating it on a daily basis. With the launch of Apple Music for Artists, we’re now providing you the same data we use for monthly financial reports to content providers, but on a daily basis. To help us achieve this, we made improvements to the accuracy of these daily updates. Song plays in Apple Music for Artists are no longer counted as separate plays whenever a listener resumes a song after a break, including after pausing a song, scrubbing through a song, or answering a phone call. These improvements do not affect royalties you may be owed by your content provider.
