Google and Facebook have helped fuel the viral redistribution of another false report that Apple was planning to kill off all music downloads in iTunes next year in order to force users into an Apple Music subscription streaming plan. They're wrong, here's why.
Apple has updated Apple Music to include a new Music Videos section to the streaming service ahead of the full release of iOS 11.3, with the addition serving as a reminder the iPhone and iPad operating system's next major upgrade will be arriving soon.
Apple's push into producing original video content may come to fruition next year, according to a group of entertainment executives familiar with content and release plans, with new programming created via Apple's heavy investment potentially viewable by customers as soon as March 2019.
Recorded music revenue jumped by double digits last year, thanks to revenue growth from Apple, Spotify and other streaming services, according to a new report from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the music industry's lobbying group
Beats co-founder and Apple Music executive Dr. Dre performed during Tuesday night's 'One Night Only' Anderson .Paak concert in London, with the rapper and producer making a rare appearance on the stage to entertain the crowd alongside the upcoming musical artist.
Netflix is reportedly in advanced talks to secure a slate of shows produced by former President Barack Obama, but if negotiations fall through, Apple and a handful of other streaming service providers are supposedly waiting in the wings.
Apple Music has announced it is sponsoring a concert at the O2 Academy Brixton in London, UK starring artist Anderson .Paak on March 13, with tickets for the one-night-only event being made available free of charge from Friday morning — but don't plan on using your iPhone in the venue.
Imagine turning your home into the bridge of the Star Trek Enterprise, where a disembodied voice deftly answers every question you can ask, and you don't carry an iPhone or iPad anymore. Unfortunately, you also can't unlock your doors, you can't go outside, the brands you like are replaced with generic alternatives, and popular games, creative apps and other content aren't available anymore. This is the fantasy future of Amazon Alexa—but fortunately not the vision of Apple's new HomePod.
Another report claims that high-end over-the-ear headphones are expected from Apple — not Beats — before the end of 2018, but the data escaping Apple's manufacturing chain remains nebulous and ill-defined.
HomePod is a sophisticated computer dedicated to the task of producing immersive, room-filling sound. That's not all it can do, however. Equipped with the same A8 processor as Apple TV 4, it can also serve as a HomeKit hub for choreographing home accessories, even enabling remote access to your devices. Here's an in-depth look.
Popular music streaming service and Apple Music competitor Spotify announced plans to go public on Wednesday, though the company has already been trading on private markets at an estimated valuation of $23 billion.
