The free trial is a loss leader for apple and the artists.

Why should only apple be taking the loss?

If apple did pay them during the free trial it would be treated as an advance or as part of an overall deal taking it into account.

Apple may or may not be ripping off artists, but, expecting them to share the loss in a loss leader exercise is no indication either way.
