Jailbreaking isn’t just for iPhones. In fact, just about any device that runs firmware has the capacity to be hacked so that the end user can run mods not initially intended by the manufacturer of said device.

There have been hints popping up throughout the month of October. All pointing to a future where Apple Music exists on a video game console. And, sure enough, those hints have turned into a real product, as Apple's app for accessing its streaming music service is now available on Sony's latest video game console.
Apple Music is available beyond the Apple ecosystem, thanks to support on some smart TVs and, most notably, Android devices.

However, there have been some grumblings that could be changing. And now even Apple's hinted at the possibility.
Apple remains the same company in the grand scheme of things, focusing almost entirely on its first-party ecosystem above all else. However, with some aspects of the business there is some branching out. For instance, Apple Music is not just an Apple-only experience, with a popular enough Android app out there in the world as well. And it looks like it’s coming soon to another platform as well.

Sony's next PlayStation console is coming in the fourth quarter of 2020. As impressive as the beastly hardware specifications released in October 2019 are, they don't paint the full picture of what avid gamers can expect in their next-generation consoles, but this remarkable real-time demo of Epic Games' Unreal Engine 5 running live on a PlayStation 5 console surely does.
