Apple’s opposition comes as 80 organizations and tech experts have written to UK Technology Minister Chloe Smith urging a rethink.

Spotify is planning to introduce a more expensive premium tier that includes high-fidelity audio, Bloomberg reports. The subscription tier, dubbed "Supremium" internally, will become Spotify's most costly plan and include HiFi audio.
