“We’re delighted to bring many of Apple’s most beloved Services to users in more countries than ever before,” Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and International Content, said in a release.

In January, Apple revealed that its services revenue soared 17% to $12.7 billion, largely thanks to the App Store, as it reported an all-time record quarter. The expansion of its services into new markets also comes a week after Apple launched its $399 iPhone SE, the most affordable iPhone in its lineup.
