Want to See What Spotify Looks Like on the iPhone X?

Spotify rendition on the iPhone X

No bottom home button.  Bezel-less screen.  And of course, no 3.5mm jack.  Get ready for a slightly different Spotify experience on the iPhone X.

This isn’t from inside Spotify (or Apple).  The illustration comes from digital designer Mamoru Kijima (email him if you want some kick-ass design work).  And it’s probably a pretty close estimation of what your future Spotify experience will look like.

Here’s another profile shot.

The iPhone X is considered a massive step forward for Apple.  But the basic touchscreen interface will remain the same, making a major Spotify UI overhaul unlikely.  But that doesn’t mean that Spotify isn’t using the opportunity to introduce some dramatic updates, and accelerate its uptake among higher-end users.

And if you can afford the iPhone X, you’re considered a ‘higher-end user’.

Of course, Apple Music will also have a svelte update for the X.  Additionally, Apple Music will have a serious advantage over Spotify, especially when it comes to pre-release testing.

At last check, Apple Music was crossing 30 million paying subscribers.

Meanwhile, it looks like Apple is experiencing heavy demand for  its $1,000-topping device.  Just moments after pre-orders went live, Apple reported a serious supply shortage.  The iPhone X is apparently back-ordered for weeks, with shares of X suppliers getting a huge bump.

Currently, Apple is experiencing a huge iPhone sales dip, thanks to lackluster iPhone 8 sales.  In fact, discounted iPhone 7s are outselling 8s, while bigger buyers await the X’s debut.  So maybe wedging the iPhone 8 in-between was a tactical error, though most expect Apple to come roaring back.

The iPhone 7 Was Selling Better Than the iPhone 8. So Apple Started Discontinuing the iPhone 7.

Spotify currently boasts 60 million paying subscribers — and rising.  A splashy iPhone X placement could add momentum ahead of its hotly-anticipated IPO, with billions waiting on the sidelines.

    Click bait bullshit. The headline reads as if this is what the new update will look like, but the second sentence states “And it’s probably a pretty close estimation of what your future Spotify experience will look like.”
