What’s new with Apple Music on iOS 16?


It all started with rumours, the real thing came and went, and now we have the authentic products in our hands. At the WWDC 2022 developer conference, it is evident that it was the iOS 16 which was the star of the event.

As of the writing of this article, the  Apple Music app has also not been left out. With the release of iOS 16, it takes full use of the opportunity to add some new features. We have already covered what iOS 16 entails on this platform and even went ahead to spill out what it carries.

To add more spices to the recipe, be careful not to overdo our meal; there are still many other formulas we have not served you. So today, it’s the Apple Music app’s time to get people talking about it. So, here are the planned changes and new features in iOS 16.

Sort your playlists by title, artist, album, and other criteria;

When you browse a singer’s or band’s page, you’ll see a new “Favorites” option that lets you track the musicians you’re most interested in. You’ll get better suggestions as a result of this.

The Volume HUD has changed its design and now displays in the bar that shows the song’s duration;

You may notice that the covers are more full while searching on Apple Music;

The Apple Music widget on the lock screen of iOS 16 has changed. It also displays the devices you’re using (a HomePod, AirPods, Beats headphones, or even corded headphones);

When you use SharePlay via Messages, it now synchronizes activities like movies, music, games, and more while you’re talking with pals;

You may add songs to the queue by dragging and dropping them;

You can transfer music from one HomePod to the next without it playing on the other;

A new feature dubbed “custom spatial audio” has been added. Owners of the AirPods 3, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max may now experience improved sound quality.

iOS 16 is still under beta testing at the moment. Apple Music might welcome some not-yet-announced features before its transition, which is planned for the following school year.
