Jimmy Iovine says he’s not leaving Apple

Despite recent reports by Billboard that Jimmy Iovine would be leaving Apple Music in August for a new tech giant, it seems the former Interscope CEO is committed to the company.

Iovine recently sat down with Variety were he revealed he’s committed to doing whatever Apple needs him to do.

He stated,

“I am almost 65, have been with Apple for four years, and in two and a half years, the [Apple Music] service has gotten to well over 30 million subscribers and Beats has continued its successful run,” he said. “But there’s still a lot more we’d like to do. I am committed to doing whatever Eddy [Cue], Tim [Cook] and Apple need me to do, to help wherever and however I can, to take this all the way. I am in the band.”

While the details of Iovine’s present dealings with Apple have not yet been made public, Iovine’s relationship with Apple, or the possibility of the lack thereof, would likely warrant a major shift in the company, as he’s been in an executive role since the purchasing of Beats Electronics in May of 2014.
