It showed up in the company’s beta app in late September, but it has now rolled out to all users. Another new addition will automatically put Spotify into Data Saver mode when you activate Low Data Mode on your device. You can ask Siri to play music through Spotify on iOS and iPadOS. According to Spotify, Siri can also control the app in CarPlay, and you can use AirPlay to play music on your HomePod with voice commands as well.

Apple has removed customer reviews from its online store, as first reported by AppleInsider, and we’ve confirmed this to be the case. AppleInsider got a tip from a reader that the reviews had been removed from the US, UK, and Australian Apple Stores (which we have also confirmed).

If you want to see the changes for yourself, you can look at the Wayback Machine archives for the original Apple Pencil for November 16th and November 17th, as found by AppleInsider. On the November 17th capture, you can see that the “Ratings & Reviews” section is gone.

Apple’s choice means that customers can’t provide useful feedback on the products available on Apple’s store — especially if a product might be bad. There were at least 735 one-star reviews for the Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, for example, but now you can’t tell if it’s good or not just by looking at that page.

We’ve asked Apple for comment and will update this story with anything we hear back.

13-inch MacBook Pro with new Magic Keyboard might be coming soon .
Filings made with the Eurasian Economic Commission based in Russia are generally a good sign that a new release is imminent. Apple’s filing, which was made a few days before Christmas, is for a yet-to-be-released Mac, described as a portable Mac that runs macOS Catalina. And it carries the model identifier of A2289 in the Eurasian Economic Commission database. One theory is that this refers to a 13-inch MacBook Pro that comes with the same Magic Keyboard with scissor switches that got a redesign last year and was included with the release of a 16-inch MacBook Pro.
