Apple Music is welcoming online mixes, having recently grown its library of DJ mixes hosted on the platform. It also rolled out two new end-user features to help people navigate DJ mixes.
Apple is known to acquire companies from time to time, and sometimes some of those acquisitions are big enough to warrant a press release from Apple itself. Today marks one of those days. The company has sent out a press release officially announcing that it has acquired a new music streaming service, which will only bolster the catalog of Apple Music itself.
In 2016, we showed our readers an innovative mini player widget for jailbroken iPhones dubbed Playtopia that could shrink to a compact size while floating over the top of any interface for convenient music playback control from anywhere.
Today, we’re excited to share that a jailbreak tweak called Playtopia 2 is now available for modern jailbroken handsets running iOS 14 — a project made possible by iOS developers Ginsu and Aviorrok.
Apple has teamed up with the popular American singer and songwriter Billie Eilish on a new short film promoting the company's new Apple Music spatial audio feature.
Once upon a time, Apple Music had an eye for a social network-esque experience. Mostly for artists distributing music on the streaming service to connect with fans in a different, more direct way. However, Apple Music Connect would not last.
For folks who don't want to subscribe, or rely, on Apple Music, there's another option called iTunes Match that allows them to upload their own music. It's a handy way to keep track of your music, digitally, especially if you're sourcing it from physical media like CDs. But it turns out many users are experiencing some issues with the service.
Earlier today, Apple announced the results for its third fiscal quarter. It was another dominant stretch of three months for the company, and, of course, its Services division. As has become the norm for these results, it's the Services division that continues to break records.
With the arrival of Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos in Apple Music earlier this year, the expectation was that the feature would work with a variety of different Apple-branded devices right out of the box. And that's certainly the case (especially with Lossless audio quality). But it turns out Apple has had to revise the list of supported devices that support the upgraded listening experience from the built-in speakers.
Earlier this year, Apple Music added two features that have quickly picked up plenty of attention. Lossless quality and Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos. For Apple Music subscribers on Android, however, the wait has been a little longer. It has finally ended, though.
Apple Music saw plenty of new features added to it in the last month. If you're a an Apple Music subscriber, you can now listen to music that supports Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos, and Lossless Audio. Apple has promised that almost all of its music collection will eventually be available in Lossless format. The support for this new codec will enable audio tracks to sound exactly like how they were created in the studio.
It has already been over two months since Apple announced support for Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos and Lossless audio in Apple Music. A month later it actually launched, and now the features are going live in India. It's been a long wait for folks in the region wanting to try these new elements out, but the wait is finally over.
Sometimes, it can be easy to forget that in 2021, there is an iPod touch still available to buy. Apple actually launched the thing in early 2019, so it's not even that old! But with so many newer devices out there in the wild, especially the iPhone, no one could blame anyone for forgetting about the iPod.
