Apple Music Classical has expanded its reach beyond iPhones and Android devices, making its debut on iPads with the latest update. Version 1.1 is available on the App Store today. The update introduces a tailored interface optimized for the larger iPad display, featuring a navigation sidebar and media playback controls at the bottom.
YouTube has become a go-to platform for various audio content, from music and podcasts to educational lectures. However, listening to YouTube audio in the background on your iPhone usually requires a YouTube Premium subscription. Luckily there is a workaround that allows iPhone owners to continue listening to YouTube audio even when the device is locked.
While this method can continue playing audio from the iOS Lock Screen, it does not support background playback while using other apps on the iPhone.
While not all songs are available in Hi-Res Lossless quality, Apple continues to add more tracks to the Apple Music catalog in this format. Once Lossless Audio is enabled, playback quality may change based on the speed of your data connection and what output devices are used. For example, Bluetooth cannot deliver a Lossless Audio connection, so connecting wireless headphones will not play back at this quality level.
The Spotify app includes many settings to customize the experience and control how much data is used while listening. Spotify Premium members can access premium streaming audio quality on their iPhone and iPad. By default, Spotify automatically controls the audio quality based on a variety of factors that are not explained. If you are a subscriber and prefer to maximize audio quality most of the time, these controls can be manually set to "Very high" to improve music quality.
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.
