The vice president of iTunes International for Apple, Olivier Schusser has admitted in an interview with The Guardian newspaper that Apple "still have a bit of homework to do" with its new music streaming service – Apple Music...

Schusser revealed that the tech giant is working on making Apple Music better: "Our focus is on editorial and playlists, and obviously we have teams all around the world working on that, but we're also adding features and cleaning up certain things."

He was asked about the recent revelation that of the 11 million people that signed up for Apple Music, a reported 48% had already stopped using it: "Our focus is more on the product than anything else: we spend most of our energy on that. That's more our priority than checking every hour the amount of people who have signed up. We have more of a long-term perspective on this."

Apple Music has been questioned for its poor usability, and Schusser addressed the criticism, saying: "The product is always our priority, and we are getting a lot of feedback. Remember, this was a very big launch in 110 markets instantly, so we get a ton of feedback. We're obviously trying to make it better every day."
