Apple News has a range of sources to surface content on a regular basis. And now it's getting even more from one of Apple's other services.
There's no denying that streaming music (and streaming media in general) has become the go-to way to consume content for a lot of people. Which means it really matters how much a service pays towards the folks putting content on those services.

Are you trying to decide which music service to commit to? Apple Music, Spotify, and Pandora are at the top of the list of options. They each offer terrific features, are available across multiple platforms, and are comparable in price. So what makes each stand out may be your deciding factor. Let’s have a look!
As you probably already know, Apple Music, Spotify, and Pandora all provide similar features.

MusicLyricsShare is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer ETHN that streamlines this process in Apple’s Music app by letting users tap and hold on the individual lyric blocks that appear when a song streams via Apple Music.

Apple, being a major player in the music streaming service sector with Apple Music, spends a lot of time refining the music consumption experience on its devices. In fact, we’d even go as far as to say that iPhones and iPads have some of the best music consumption interfaces in the industry.
Still, unless you’re physically inside of the Music app or another music apps of your choosing, the only other places you can go to interact with your media playback will be the Lock Screen, Notification Center, or Control Center. These are always a gesture away, and for someone who wants instantaneous access to music playback controls, that’s one gesture too many.
Is Apple a services company these days? It's certainly possible to make that argument. And being in the Apple ecosystem probably means you pay for at least a couple of different options offered by the company. But with so many other offerings out there, it can be a task simply choosing which ones to keep.
With a personalized radio station, Apple Music typically utilizes an individual user's profile picture for the cover artwork. But it looks like Apple's decided to go a different route now.
