Apple is making Shazam a bigger part of your iPhone

Apple bought music recognition app Shazam in 2018, and now it’s integrating it into iOS in another big way — a new Music Recognition feature can identify songs playing around you as well as in apps on your phone. And it even works when you’re listening to music on your headphones.

The new feature is available as a toggle in Control Center, but it does require a developer beta of iOS 14.2 if you want to try it right now. That toggle will look like a little Shazam icon, and you just need to tap it for your iPhone to start listening.

You could already use Siri to summon Shazam and identify songs playing around you, but being able to identify music in your apps could be handy too — if, say, you’re wondering what song that creator picked for their TikTok or YouTube video.

Interestingly, Android users

iPhone 12 wasn’t the only Apple product missing from this week’s event

Apple has announced its newest iPhone during a September media event every year since 2012’s iPhone 5. During 2020’s September Apple event, we got new Apple Watch and iPad models, and a bundled subscription service, but no new iPhone. That shouldn’t come as a complete surprise, as a delay has been rumored for months now, and the conventional wisdom says the iPhone 12 will be announced at an October event

Why the iPhone 12 wasn’t released at Apple’s September event

The omission isn’t a surprise, but it’s still unusual. For a company that built its brand on innovation, Apple has become pretty predictable. Every fall it announces its latest iPhones. The company has announced new iPhones every September since 2012. The year prior, in 2011, the iPhone 4s was announced in October.

However, Apple has delayed the release of its phones before, most recently the iPhone X, which wasn’t in stores until November.

When is the iPhone 12 coming?

Analysts expect the new phones to be announced in October at the earliest. Apple confirmed that the iPhone would be late on an earnings call back in July, when Luca Maestri, the company’s chief financial officer, said iPhone supply was going to be available a few weeks later than usual.

A month might not seem like a big deal, but Apple wants all its new products released and in stock ahead

No iPhone 12 Announcement, But Here’s What Apple Did Reveal At Its Latest Event

Apple CEO Tim Cook squashed hopes for an iPhone 12 reveal right out of the gate at the start of Tuesday’s event, confirming that no new iPhone would be shown. Despite that letdown, the tech event still had a lot to show eager consumers.

As hinted at by the event’s “Time Flies” branding, Tuesday’s event kicked off with the new Apple Watch Series 6, featuring a 20% faster S6 chip. The company’s latest smartwatch boasts a bevy of new and improved health tracking features, including better sleep tracking, hand washing tracking, and the much-touted ability to determine blood-oxygen levels using red and infrared light scanners.

The Series 6 is on sale now and starts shipping out this Friday. The product will be available in gray, silver, gold, blue aluminum, and Product (RED), starting at $399.

Next, the company unveiled its much-rumored services bundle: Apple One. This bundle will package Apple’s

Apple is holding an event this week, where we expect to see the Apple Watch Series 6 and a new iPad Air debut, and while it’s not impossible that the tech giant could delve into the iPhone 12 on the day, we think it’s unlikely. 

While we wait to find out, these iPhone 12 images will tide us over nicely. 

Concept designer Micheal Ma mocked up renders of the iPhone 12’s high end models, which boast larger screens than their more affordable counterparts. There are four models in total with a fifth, cheaper LTE-only device rumoured to on the way.
