Although Apple Music does not make it publicly official how much they pay artists per streams, many studies have found that unsigned artists tend to get paid differently than signed artists.

Unlike Spotify, Apple Music does not earn money from advertisements through freemium plans. Apple Music does earn the majority of their revenues through their subscriptions. The royalty calculator below typically depends of a variable of different variables, such as country from where the user streams from and the different deals that music distributors have with Apple Music.

The calculator below will give you a rough estimate of how much money you can expect to receive in royalties aside from distribution fees, management, and the labels’ cut from Apple Music. For other streaming services, check out our list of other music royalty calculators.

Please note – The estimate below is the total amount the artist receives before any label, management, and distributors have taken their cut.
