Apple Music rolls out New Music Daily to keep you updated with the latest songs

Apple Music has rolled out a new playlist named New Music Daily, which aims to keep subscribers updated with the latest songs as the world’s most popular artists release them.

In its description, New Music Daily is the home for “the latest must-hear songs,” and it is updated every day. The lead single in the first-ever edition of the playlist is The Man by Taylor Swift, from her new album Lover. Apple Music will be featuring different lead artists in the artwork for the playlist as its contents change daily.

The first New Music Daily includes more than 80 songs from other artists such as Lana Del Rey, Missy Elliott, and Wiz Khalifa, with a total runtime of about five hours.

Most of Apple’s editorial playlists are curated every week, so New Music Daily breaks the mold by offering a new playlist every day. The new playlist replaces Best of the Week, one of the playlists updated weekly.

With New Music Daily, Apple Music subscribers will be able to enjoy a more dynamic playlist. While every song on the list will not be different each day, there will be much more variance compared to Best of the Week, which remained static for a full seven days before being updated.

Subscribers will be able to add New Music Daily to their library, and the playlist will automatically update as the curators change its contents.

The launch of New Music Daily comes right after the rollout of the Shazam Discovery Top 50. The playlist is the first of its kind on Apple Music that uses Shazam, the music-seeking app that Apple purchased last year. The music identification app has been downloaded more than 1 billion times and is used 20 million times daily, and the data that this activity generates is likely behind the new Shazam-powered playlist.

Apple Music, which offers 50 million songs on demand, also offers live radio stations and custom playlists. Apple’s music streaming service comes with a three-month free trial, after which subscriptions cost $10 per month or $99 per year for an individual, and $15 per month for a family plan that may include up to six members.

Apple Music Sing brings karaoke singalongs to iPhones, Apple TV
Apple Music Sing.

Apple wants you to sing like everyone's listening with its new Apple Music Sing feature, a karaoke mode that works with the music streaming service's popular lyrics experience.

Available later this month on iPhone (11 and later), iPads (third-gen and later), and the 2022 model of Apple TV 4K (not earlier models, for some reason) to really max out the karaoke experience in living rooms, Apple Music Sing will be incorporated right into the Apple Music app, giving you the option to use a slider to control the volume of the vocals in Apple Music's song library so you can sing along. With the slider, you can tweak the volume to either blend your voice with the singer's or drop them out completely to go solo. Background vocals are also viewable independently from the main vocals for budding backup singers to follow more easily, and a Duet view separates multiple singers' lyrics on opposite sides of the screen.

Apple’s new iPad Pro now has the same M2 chip as the latest MacBook Pro
The M2 iPad Pro.

The 2022 iPad Pro has finally been announced and, after months of speculation, seems to be a solid step up from last year's version thanks to the M2 chipset that it boasts — the same found in the redesigned MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. The shared DNA between the 2022 iPad Pro and MacBook Pro makes a lot of sense following Apple's announcement earlier this year that iPadOS 16 would push to make the line between Apple tablets and laptops thinner than ever before.

To achieve this, the 2022 iPad Pro comes with the highly anticipated OS upgrade installed right out of the box. While there are still plenty of differences between iPadOS and MacOS, the new Stage Manager app is meant to make multitasking on iPads just as simple as on MacBooks. With the M2 SoC (system on chip), switching between tasks and apps should feel smoother than on previous iPad generations. That said, Stage Manager will run on older iPads despite their lack of the M2 chipset, Apple has announced.
