Apple releases iOS 13.1 beta even before 13.0 officially launches

Apple releases iOS 13.1 beta even before 13.0 officially launches Less than a month before the expected public release of iOS 13.0, Apple has already launched a beta version of iOS 13.1 for developers. Though Apple's upcoming operating system update iOS 13.0 isn't expected to launch until the fall of this year, on Tuesday the company released a developer beta of iOS 13.1. The company launched the public beta 7 of iOS 13 just over a week ago, but evidently, Apple has already collected all the information it needs to officially launch the operating system, as a developer beta of the next version has been launched. The number of updates, however, is so slim that the average user would not even notice.

Apple Music is getting a big expansion today with a new web interface that will let subscribers stream music directly from a browser without having to install iTunes or a separate Apple Music app. The new web interface launches today as a public beta for subscribers at beta.music.apple.com.

The interface looks a lot like Apple’s new standalone Music app that the company is launching with macOS Catalina later this year, except it runs inside a web browser. Apple says that it should work in all browsers, including Google Chrome, and on all devices, including Windows 10, Chrome OS, and even mobile platforms like Android.

Apple Music comes to browsers today with a beta web player

Apple Music comes to browsers today with a beta web player Apple Music is making its debut in browsers today as Apple continues to untangle its media services from the confines of iTunes. If you're a subscriber, you can check out the public beta of the web player by signing in with your Apple ID. The browser-based player includes "a core set of features" at the outset. For now, you can search for and play any song in the Apple Music catalog, as well as tunes from your library if you've set up the Sync Library option on other devices. You can also access your playlists and the various sections that you'll be used to: Library, Search, For You, Browse and Radio. Apple plans to add more features later.

Apple Music, minus the app

The site offers access to the entire Apple Music catalog as well as any tracks users have synced to their libraries that aren’t on Apple Music. Playlists — including Apple’s personalized “For You” recommendations — and Apple Music’s radio stations will be available as part of the beta, too.

The beta site will be missing some features, including the flagship Beats 1 live broadcast, some of Apple’s original music video content, and smart playlists. But Apple says it’ll continue to build out the website over time. Additionally, you’ll eventually be able to sign up for Apple Music directly from the web, although that won’t be available in this version of the beta.

Apple Music launches a public beta on the web

Apple Music launches a public beta on the web Apple Music is coming to the web. Apple today is launching a public beta of its popular music streaming service on the web, which will be available to all Apple Music subscribers worldwide. This is the first time that Apple Music has been officially offered on the web, though an unofficial app over the past few months has gained attention after attracting hundreds of thousands of users. Clearly, there was some pent-up demand for a web version of the service. To use the new Apple Music web version, subscribers can visit the link beta.music.apple.com and sign in with their Apple ID.

As for the logic of adding a web interface, the move allows Apple to bring Apple Music to other platforms — like Chrome OS or Linux — without having to develop and support a custom app for each platform. Web support also puts Apple on par with its biggest competitor in the music sphere: Spotify. The Swedish streaming service, which became the first platform to hit 100 million paid subscribers earlier this year, has offered a web player for years that allows subscribers to access music without having to install a full-fledged app.
