Spotify continues to add features in its race to continue domination of streaming music services on the iPhone. Recent updates to Spotify have brought a Sleep timer to the iOS app. Falling asleep to your favorite tunes, ambient noise, or podcast has never been easier. Spotify will automatically stop playing audio when the Sleep timer goes off.
The Apple TV and Apple TV 4K can be personalized for different users sharing the device. Once different user accounts are created, each person watching Apple TV will enjoy their own profile with viewing histories and recommendations. While switching accounts does not change the app layout on the home screen, it will customize the Up Next and other sections of tvOS based on viewing habits. You can switch Apple TV profiles with two clicks on the Siri remote.
Keeping track of appointments, holidays, and other events with the iOS Calendar app is convenient. The iPhone integrates event details such as phone numbers and addresses seamlessly into Calendar, with Siri intelligently adding items based on incoming email and messages. Sometimes a PDF file of event dates, or a schedule printed on paper is the best way to share your Calendar. There's a simple way to quickly print your Calendar data as a PDF directly on iPhone.
Apple continually delivers firmware updates for its AirPods, AirPods 2, and AirPods Pro wireless earphones. Firmware updates can offer improvements to sound quality, longer battery life, bug fixes, or even improve security. The AirPods Pro are the latest model to be released, with firmware version 2B584 installed at launch. How can AirPods Pro owners be sure they're running the most recent firmware?
Wireless Bluetooth headphones are great for untethered listening. But many devices have traditional headphone connectors, rendering AirPods, Beats, and other wireless options useless. Apple officially ditched the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and later, making the Lightning to 3.5mm adapter the missing link for wired headphones. Twelve South now makes a similar adapter to connect the latest wireless headphones such as AirPods directly to a 3.5mm headphone port.
