Shazam is offering a promotion for 5 months of free Apple Music from now until January 17, 2021. Apple acquired Shazam in 2018 and has integrated the song identification service into the iOS Control Center and into the Siri voice assistant. The Shazam app still offers more functionality, such as saving music to iCloud and playing identified songs on linked streaming music services.
There are many ways to get extra help when using the iPhone for everyday tasks. One of the Accessibility features built into iOS is Typing Feedback. This feature provides auditory confirmation of keyboard input across the system. Entering text in any app can be accompanied by live feedback to read characters, words, or help with predictive text options.
If your AirPods Pro are acting up, you may be able to get a free replacement pair directly from Apple. The company initiated its AirPods Pro service program to address sound issues experienced by some customers. The problems only occur in AirPods Pro manufactured prior to October 2020, and do not affect the charging cases at all.
Now that Siri can recognize third-party music apps on the HomePod, users of other services can easily play content from sources other than Apple Music. For example, playing a song on Pandora is simple as adding the words "on Pandora" to the end of your request. But how can one change the default music service on HomePod?
Getting the name of a song that's playing can be as easy as launching Shazam from the Control Center. But what happens when the song is only playing in your head? Google has launched a new service to help identify mystery songs with just your voice.
