As first announced last fall, Apple Music took the plunge this year and sponsored the Super Bowl halftime show for the first time. Formerly sponsored by Pepsi, the Super Bowl 57 halftime show will feature a performance by Rihanna. The multi-year deal also means that Apple will release exclusive Super Bowl content for the event and beyond.
It's that time of the year again. Apple Music Replay brings subscribers a review of their year in listening. Top songs, favorite albums, and more are updated as the year goes on. Apple Music fans may be wondering where they can find their personalized year-end Apple Music Replay.
Each year Apple Music subscribers can look forward to the Apple Music Replay. For 2022, Apple has added some features to Replay, which reviews the entire year of listening stats, top songs, favorite albums, and more. The service has often been compared the competing annual summary Spotify Wrapped. Spotify Wrapped is delivered once per year, while Apple Music Replay can be accessed during the year as it changes.
Apple has begun warning subscribers that access to its services will soon increase in cost. Apple Music, Apple TV+, and Apple One subscribers are receiving emails a month in advance of price increases, giving them time to continue or cancel their automatically renewed subscriptions. Price increases range from $1 per month to $3 per month for some family plans.
The silver lining is that Apple TV+ now offers more original content than ever, and higher licensing costs for Apple Music means artists should receive a larger slice of the profits.
The Apple Music app has arrived in the Microsoft Store for Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. Now Xbox users can try a one-month free trial of Apple Music directly on their game console, or log into their accounts to stream millions of songs. Apple Music subscriptions are completely ad-free and available across various devices.
