The relationship between the former British band and Apple dates back to the dispute over the Apple brand, which the Beatles used for a long time in their business activities. As Apple moved into the music industry, the conflict grew, until an agreement was signed in 2007 that allowed the apple brand to obtain all rights to the name and to license it back to the Beatles for their specific uses.
Then came the historic deal that allowed Apple to sell its music in the store in late 2010, bringing incredible benefits to both parties . Another key moment was the release of an exclusive, free animated eBook of Yellow Submarine in the iBook Store last year.
We see a very fruitful relationship for both parties, which will continue to bear fruit in the future.
