Apple Music v3.4 Beta for Android: What’s new?
Also in the new version, the Now Playing screen is able to automatically generate album covers. There’s a quick way to share the track you’re grooving to, to your social media stories. For those who use the service with a limited data plan, there are easy-to-manage options to manage data usage. As per a report by XDA, there are also several references to an Apple One subscription bundle. Also Read - Apple event on September 15 could focus on new iPad and Apple Watch Series 6
We know that Apple One will allegedly offer a base bundle package for Apple users that will include a subscription for Apple TV+, Apple Music, Apple News+, and iCloud storage. There will also be a base plan that includes just the Music and TV+ subscriptions. It is as of now, unclear if Apple will allow users to build their own Apple One plan based on services that they will use.
We could likely hear more about Apple One at the upcoming event on September 15. The event will reportedly see the brand reveal the new Apple Watch Series 6 and a new iPad, but no iPhone 12. The brand had already announced back in July that their new iPhone series had been delayed, and we could perhaps see a separate event for the new phones in October.
