Back in 2020, Apple Music and Beats 1 welcomed a new element to its listening library: Verzuz. It's a live-streaming event that pits two artists in a lyrical one-on-one battle.
At the time, the site, which launched initially on Instagram Live, was going to see a worthwhile time slot on Beats 1 while also still streaming on Facebook's Instagram platform. The first episode for Apple Music/Beats 1 premiered in mid-July of last year, and apparently it was a pretty successful launch. A new report says Apple was looking to outright acquire the rap-battle site.
Apple is getting a prestigious new addition in the music battle scene, with Verzuz joining Apple Music and Beats 1 this week.

There has been some major confusion lately regarding what Apple's HomePod wireless speaker can and cannot play.
