As reported by The Information, it is quite possible that Apple is planning in the near future to bundle all of its media services into one subscription. Perhaps the most visible or the most familiar of the tech giant’s media offerings is Apple Music, but some may not realize that the iPhone maker has also poured investments in other media ventures.
Apple has officially started rolling out iOS 11.3, the latest update to its iOS mobile operating system. It goes without saying that this newest iteration of the tech giant’s OS for its iPhone and iPad devices deliver loads of fixes for various bugs and glitches, but it also happens to offer a few new features.
A little more than a couple of months ago, Apple had shared a preview of iOS 11.3, so there is some bit of excitement for the upgraded ARKit 1.5, which can now detect a wider range of objects and surfaces. iOS mobile users who are fans of augmented reality should start to experience these enhancements soon enough.
WatchOS 4.1, the newest version of Apple’s operating system for wearable devices, is expected to be rolled out before the start of November. Fans of the iPhone maker’s wearables have every right to be excited -- this latest update comes with loads of new enhancements, including the addition of music streaming over a cell network and Wi-Fi by way of Apple Music and iCloud Music libraries plus a new Radio streaming app (more on these later).
Recently this week, Daniel Ek, the founder and chief executive officer of Spotify, has enthusiastically tweeted that the music streaming service provider now has 40 million paying subscribers. Three weeks earlier, Billboard had reported that a high ranking executive from Spotify had revealed that the company had breached 39 million paying members, which is quite impressive considering that back in March early this year, Spotify had already reached 30 million paying subscribers.
In this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), not only did Apple officially unveil the latest version of its iOS mobile operating system (the feature laden iOS 10, which will only work with a certain lineup of Apple devices), the tech giant also had its chief executive officer, Tim Cook, and other top Apple executives deliver some big numbers and statistics. Indeed, despite iPhone fatigue and slumping sales, Apple remains quite a formidable player, as these numbers show.
Apple recently deployed a software update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices this week. This latest software release should update iOS devices to iOS version 9.2, and comes with enhancements to Apple Music and Apple News, as well as several fixes for various bugs. To start downloading this newest software update, iOS mobile users can head to Settings, click on General, and then choose Software Update.
Apple Music has finally come to mobile devices powered by Google’s Android mobile operating system, albeit it is still on beta. The music streaming subscription service launches on Android in all of mobile markets around the world that Apple has Music for IOS in, that is, with the exception of the Chinese market, where the company is planning to launch a beta soon.
For the nth time, T-Mobile yet again unveils a new promotion. This time around, the carrier is saying that it will lock in the price of its iPhone to $15 per month. This applies to any person who purchases an iPhone device now with every intention to upgrade to the next iPhone model coming out later this year.
After almost three years, Apple’s iPod Touch finally gets upgraded. The newly enhanced iPod Touch now finds itself with certain features found in Apple’s flagship device, the iPhone 6. For instance, the improved iPod Touch now comes with an 8 megapixel camera, which is a significant upgrade on the previous model’s 5 megapixel camera. Also, the latest iPod Touch version now also sports a 64 bit processor, which means that the device is now capable of much faster processing speeds and can even improved graphics especially for games. Lastly, the device is now equipped with “M” chip for motion tracking purposes.
Apple recently rolled out a minor update to iTunes that should take care of some technical problems that Apple users have been experiencing while using iTunes Match and cloud services offered by the iPhone maker.
