    Big Day for Apple as Several Updates Are Released

    Apple today released updates to iOS and iPad OS 13.2. Software updates were also released for the AppleTV. Rounding out today’s updates was the HomePod Software update.

    Today’s updates saw the addition of several new features, including the ability to have Siri announce incoming messages on AirPods automatically, new Emoji, new HomeKit options, new Siri privacy features, and more. Additionally, new features, such as Handoff, voice recognition, ambient sounds, and more arrived on the HomePod. Stay tuned to this blog for tips on all the new features.

    Apple also announced the new AirPods Pro, available to order immediately for $249. The AirPods Pro will supplement the existing AirPods, with a new model, featuring noise canceling features, higher sound quality, and multiple tips to accommodate just about any size ear.

    This has been an incredible year for Apple already, with new hardware, software, and services released in basically every category throughout the year, and with AppleTV Plus scheduled for release this Friday, it doesn’t look like things will be slowing down any time soon. There are even a few, as yet unreleased products rumored to be in the pipeline. These include the much-anticipated Mac Pro, a new 16 inch MacBook, and more. There is even evidence of the potential release of a device tracker that can be placed on keys, remotes, and more, similar to the Tile products, though this has not been confirmed by a Apple at this point. Either way, there’s never been a better time to be an Apple user than right now.

    IOS 13 Tip 7: Listen to Live Radio

    With an Apple Music membership, you have access to more than fifty million songs whenever you want them. You can also listen to personalized, curated radio stations across numerous genres, as well as the live internet radio station Beats One. Now however, even more options are available to all Apple users in the latest software. You can now listen to live radio stations on your iPad, iPhone, AppleTV, HomePod, iPod Touch, and Mac. Just open the Music app, choose the Radio tab, then scroll down until you see, “Broadcast Radio”. From there you will be able to choose from over one hundred thousand radio stations. Not all radio stations are available. To be available, the radio station must support an internet broadcast through an app like iHeart Radio, Radio.Com, or TuneIn. As stated, more than one hundred thousand radio stations do support this, so you should have no trouble finding some of your favorites across all genres, from all around the world.

    Listening on a HomePod? just ask Siri. On all Apple devices, just specify the radio station, and Siri will play it for you. For example, say something like, “Play 98.1 the Breeze”. Happy listening, and stay tuned to our blog and our Podcast for even more tips coming soon.

    IOS 13 Tip 6: Dynamic Lyrics in Music

    For some time now, the Music app on your Apple devices has provided access to the lyrics of many songs to which you might be listening. However, you could only see these lyrics displayed on the screen. What if you wanted to sing along? Well, now you can, thanks to Dynamic Lyrics. This new feature allows the lyrics to display in sync with the song, as it is playing. So, sighted users can follow along, seeing the lyrics where they are sung, as they are sung. It’s never been easier to follow along and belt out your favorite jams, and it will take family karaoke night to a whole new level.

    Voiceover users, you will still have to read the lyrics yourself, as you probably would not want to hear the spoken lyrics interrupting the songs you love. Still though, this is a great new feature, and we here at TTJ really love it. We think you will too. It works on your iPhone, iPad, AppleTV, and Mac, once Mac OS Catalina is released.

    If you are subscribed to Apple Music, just start playing a song, tap on the song at the bottom of the screen to open the Now Playing screen, then tap “Lyrics” at the bottom of the screen. On AppleTV, lyrics automatically appear. For more information, check out this Apple Support Article.

    If you have not yet subscribed to Apple Music, consider giving it a try. With Apple Music, you’ll enjoy access to over fifty million songs, curated playlists, personalized radio stations, and much more. Take your music, playlists, and more with you on all your devices, and even download your favorite songs for offline listening if you need to. Apple offers customers a three month free trial of Apple Music, and there are family plans and discounted student plans available.
