Before explaining yourself how to download spotify on iphone, I want to give you some preliminary information about this popular music streaming service. In fact, you must know that it is possible to take advantage of Spotify for freeby downloading its official app from the iOS App Store.
The version free of Spotify, however, allows you to play the music on the platform only in random mode. Also, playback is interrupted by commercials, you can only skip a limited number of songs per hour, and you can’t download music for offline listening.
To remove all these limitations (and also get the ability to listen to music at maximum quality, i.e. at 320kbps) you need to subscribe to Spotify Premiuma subscription with no permanence constraints whose cost is 9.99 euros/month, after a free trial period of one month (or three months, in some promotional periods).
Other plans available are the named ones Premium for Family (15.99 euros/month) e Premium for students (4.99 euros/month) which are, respectively, designed for groups of people living in the same household and for students.
In this regard, for more information on this, refer to the next chapter of this tutorial of mine in which I will tell you better about Spotify Premium.
