iOS 18 will Boost Apple Music with These Features

With just weeks to go before Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC24), the rumour mill is churning out exciting possibilities for iOS 18. While some leaks might be a bit off the mark, they offer a glimpse into what Apple might have in store for music and audio experiences. Let’s delve into the latest buzz surrounding iOS 18 and what features it will bring to Apple Music.

One of the most widely discussed features is the potential arrival of “Smart Song Transitions” in Apple Music. According to a report, this feature would allow users to control the crossfade duration between songs, ranging from one to twelve seconds. However, it’s important to note that Apple Music already offers crossfade functionality on iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and even Android, with the ability to set the desired duration between songs.

So, what could Smart Song Transitions truly be? The report hints at a more dynamic approach. It might analyze the ending of each song and automatically adjust the crossfade effect. For instance, if a song fades out with a few seconds of silence, Smart Song Transitions might seamlessly blend it into the next track. This functionality actually exists on the Android version of Apple Music, but not on Apple devices yet. Perhaps iOS 18 will bridge this gap and offer a more unified experience.

The same leak also mentions a mysterious “Spatial Gaming” mode coming to iOS 18. While details are scarce, it could signify a significant leap forward in immersive gaming experiences on iPhones and iPads. Imagine a world where game soundscapes envelop you, creating a more realistic and engaging atmosphere. This could involve advancements in spatial audio or the utilization of the gyroscope and accelerometer for more nuanced directional sound effects.

Another head-scratcher is the rumoured “Passthrough” option. The report speculates it might be a rebranding of the existing Spatial Audio feature. However, considering Apple’s recent emphasis on “Spatial” branding (like the Spatial Computer in the Mac Pro and Spatial Video recording on the iPhone 15 Pro), this seems unlikely.

A more plausible explanation lies in the audio world itself. In music production, “passthrough” often refers to delivering audio in its highest fidelity from the source to the output device. This aligns more closely with the potential evolution of Apple Music’s lossless audio playback. Perhaps iOS 18’s Passthrough feature could unlock further enhancements in lossless audio quality or introduce new ways to experience uncompressed audio on iPhones and iPads.

While these leaks offer a taste of what might be coming, all will be revealed on June 10th at WWDC24’s opening keynote. Apple will officially unveil iOS 18, iPadOS 18, macOS 15, and watchOS 11, giving us a clear picture of the future for Apple devices and the potential advancements in music and audio experiences. So, mark your calendars and get ready for a wave of exciting announcements from Apple!
