All Apple Music subscribers are still on the free three month trial. The streaming service launched on June 30. The true subscriber number will be available in early October when the free trial expires for those who signed up at launch. 

In a rare moment of sharing, Eddy Cue also revealed that the App Store had a record July with transactions valued at $1.7 billion. "With particular momentum in China," says Eddy Cue.

Apple's stock can use some good news. Apple (AAPL:NASDAQ) dropped from a $132 high in mid-July to $115.40 at market close yesterday. investors are most concerned about iPhone sales. Apple lost its leading position in China to Xiaomi and Huawei last quarter. A new report shows though renewed growth in Europe for the iPhone.
