What’s new about Apple Music in iOS 12

With this fall’s release of iOS 12, one Apple Music upgrade will include the ability to search for songs by their lyrics, rather than just artist, album, or title.

Where a song contains the right lyrics, that fact will be highlighted in search results, AppleInsider found in testing the iOS 12 developer beta. The app still appears to prefer song titles when filtering search results.
The tweak should nevertheless make Apple Music friendlier to use, since people often mistake lyrics for titles, or may only be able to remember one line when trying to locate something.
Lyrics were added to Apple Music with 2016’s iOS 10, but only for display while listening to tracks. The feature requires an internet connection, since it might be problematic to fetch lyrics for every song stored on a person’s iPhone or iPad.

Also new in the iOS 12 beta is bigger artwork for artist pages, and a “Play” button on them. The latter will play every track in an artist’s discography.

Apple Apple Music Hits 50 Million Subscribers

CEO Tim Cook announced the milestone on Tuesday.

That’s an uptick of 10 million subscribers since April, when Apple Music passed 40 million subscribers. Cook did not detail how many of the 50 million users are free trials.

Apple Music still sits behind competitor Spotify, which has 75 million paying customers. One way Apple has looked to differentiate its product from Spotify is to offer original programming to its subscribers, including series Carpool Karaoke and Planet of the Apps. “We are very interested in the content business,” Cook told Bloomberg TV. “We will be playing in a way that is consistent with our brand. We’re not ready to give any details on it yet. But it’s clearly an area of interest.”

Apple is currently readying a large content push through its newly created original programming division, led by Sony TV veterans Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht. The company has yet to provide details about how its forthcoming shows, including a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories and a morning show drama from Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, will be distributed.
