What’s new about Apple Music in iOS 10

The iOS 10 release date is likely two months away, but the public beta is available now. One of the biggest changes in iOS 10 besides all the new messaging features is the redesigned Music app. Apple has created a simpler interface in an attempt to make Apple Music easier to use and songs easier to find. The app has larger fonts and bold titles with easy to understand tabs such as Library, Radio and Search. What makes Apple Music better than before is the ability to easily find your own music in the app.

Apple Music of iOS 10

Apple Music was met with criticism after the company redesigned the app and launched its own music streaming service in 2015. iOS users were confused on how to access music they had previously purchased through iTunes and how to listen to already existing playlists. The redesigned app in iOS 10 puts your music front and center in the easy to use Library section. The Artists tab looks like a Contacts page for musicians with an alphabetized list and easy to identify image icons.

Artists changes of iOS 10

The app is heavily focused on album art making it easy to spot the musician you’re looking for. The Albums tab includes large album art for easy browsing, or users can utilize the Search tab to quickly locate artists, songs and albums. The app also distinguishes between songs that you have actually downloaded onto your device so it is less confusing for Apple Music subscribers.

The For You section is basically the same as it was before. The app still offers suggestions for new music based on your past listening history, plus it offers a better mix of music and new playlists every day. You still need a subscription to access Apple’s streaming service and take advantage of all the perks, like the For You section. You can join Apple Music by navigating to Settings > Music and tapping the Join Apple Music link. Non-members can still access the Connect and Radio sections. The Radio tab includes live streams to Beats 1, NPR, ESPN and Bloomberg Radio.

The Music app has also seen some slight tweaks from beta to beta, which suggests we haven’t seen the final product. The redesigned Music app will be available in iOS 10 when it is released this fall.

The first public iOS 10 beta is now available for download on all supported devices.

Amnesty (I) Crystal Castles

Crystal Castles are an experimental electronic band formed in 2003 in Toronto, Ontario by songwriter/producer Ethan Kath. Crystal Castles are known for their chaotic live shows and lo-fi melancholic homemade productions. They released many limited vinyl singles between 2006 and 2007 before releasing a trilogy of critically acclaimed albums between 2008 and 2012.

The Preview EP Stanaj

The EP clearly boasts an impressive line of talent, but it’s the EP track standout, “Ain’t Love Strange,” which was extremely special for Stanaj to record. “I also got to work with Sebastian Kole, who wrote Alessia Cara’s “Here,” and who also wrote “Ain’t Love Strange” for me to record. I instantly fell in love with that record, there’s so much soul to it.”

Zone JEFF the Brotherhood

Nashville garage rock duo JEFF The Brotherhood have announced the August 12th release of their latest full-length, Zone, through Dine Alone Records. Though the new album chronologically follows 2015’s Global Chakra Rhythms, Zone marks the third and final installment in a spiritual trilogy that includes 2009’s Heavy Days and 2011’s We Are The Champions.

Boy King Wild Beasts

Boy King was made in Dallas with John Congleton (St. Vincent, Swans), and replaces the ornate detail of its predecessors with machine-tooled funk and pitch-shifted gasps, aiming to marry Justin Timberlake’s groove with Nine Inch Nails’ aggression. Whereas 2014’s Present Tense extolled the spiritual fulfillment that can come from sex and love, their sole lyrical concern here is destruction at the hands of desire. The need to keep things fresh five albums in is understandable, and Wild Beasts should be smart enough to adapt.

How to watch Apple Launch 2016 online

Apple is gearing up for its annual September product launch event where it is expected to unveil the next generation of the iPhone and Apple Watch.

It’s that time of the year again when Apple invites tech journalists from around the world, including TechRadar, to witness the launch of its latest devices – and the star of this particular show is almost certain to be the heavily-rumored iPhone 7.

9-7

One of the easiest ways for Apple fans to watch the Apple launch event on September 7 is on a Mac using Apple’s Safari internet browser with Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology.

All you need to do is open up Safari and head to Apple’s webpage for its September 2016 event, which will host a live video stream of the Apple launch event.

System requirements:  HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).

Some rumors about iPhone 7 you will be interested:

It is expected to have an upgraded camera, come with a 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch display, and pressure-sensitive home button. Rumours suggest Apple could remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from the phone and move the antenna bands to the edges. It may also have 50% more processing power

It is expected to be unveiled at the beginning of next month, with September 16 or 23 rumoured to be the day it will go on sale

Currency fluctuations and rumours that Apple could ditch the 16GB version of the phone mean that the price is still uncertain. The last iPhone 6s began at £539.

Let’s look forwarding to the day is coming.

Two days after dropping a “visual album” called “Endless,” Frank Ocean on Saturday debuted his hotly anticipated album “Blond” — “Blonde” on Apple Music and iTunes — as a two-week windowed exclusive on Apple’s streaming music service (Related: Apple Music Converter).

Frank Ocean has released a 45-minute long video titled “Endless.” A representative from Apple Music calls it his new “visual album.” The rep also told Pitchfork to “keep an eye out this weekend for more from Frank.” It features new Frank songs and takes place in the same warehouse where Ocean has been hosting a web stream. The new songs feature contributions from Jonny Greenwood, James Blake, and more; two songs were recorded at Abbey Road. The status of Ocean’s Boys Don’t Cry and its long-reported accompanying print publication are currently unclear. Find the tracklist below, and watch “Endless” here.
