"Apple didn't want DRM and when they got big enough they made the music industry let them take DRM off iTunes"

Bollocks. Apple used DRM as a selling point to incentivise the music industry to sell their catalogues through iTunes. Apple also used it to lock their iThing users into the Apple ecosystem.

They only gave up on it when people started seriously suing them and other people were able to break the DRM within days of it being updated. Essentially, the cost / benefit ratio was no longer in Apples favour.
