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.
Last month, Apple rolled out Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos for Apple Music, and it works on most Apple devices. Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos offers a surround-sound audio experience when listening to music on Apple Music. The feature will work on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV 4K. You can also play Spatial Audio on the HomePod, but via the Apple TV 4K. As of now, over 20 million tracks support Spatial Audio, and more will be added by the end of this year.
Apple Music is by far one of the most popular ways to stream music on the iOS & iPadOS platforms. This statement remains true even regarding users of jailbroken handsets.
Jailbreakers who want to upgrade their user experience in the Apple Music app are in luck this Tuesday morning thanks to a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed MusicBanners by iOS developer level3tjg, as it effectively replaces the Apple Music app’s ugly center-screen HUD pop-ups with something nicer.
Every once in a while, Apple slips in a new playlist (or more) for Apple Music subscribers. It's just another sign that Apple is always looking for new ways to spice up the service. It might not exactly be as personal as some might like, but for folks who want a weekly recap of some of the week's noteworthy stores, this latest update will be right up your alley.
Apple is regarded as one of the most influential players in the music industry — not only because of what iTunes once was, but also because of the creation of Apple Music and its seamless integration with the company’s expansive mobile device and desktop computer offerings.
Given just how much Apple seems to have invested in the music industry, it’s somewhat curious as to why the Now Playing interface on iPhones and iPads hasn’t changed much over the years. In fact, many are now calling on Apple to offer some sort of redesign after a seemingly stagnant UI that changes so little over time.
We knew it was coming before it happened, thanks to plenty of rumors. But when Apple actually did it, people had some opinions. Now it has been several years since Apple launched the iPhone X and removed the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone lineup. But is it time to bring it back?
The iPod music player didn't just change the music industry as we know it, it also changed Apple and set it on a path it is today. Feeling nostalgic? Check out this web app that replicates the iPod classic interface in your browser and syncs with your Spotify or Apple Music library.
