Apple has been working on how to create both Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality for many years, but a new patent shows it's also looking at recording. A fully recorded AR/VR experience could be documented and replayed later, accord to Apple. It's already possible to record live streams of, for instance, gameplay, but Apple's aim is to capture both the computer-generated elements of an experience, and the real-world ones. Augmented Reality, in particular, combines real-world environments with digitally-added elements. Apple refers to the combination of this, virtual reality and any real-world interaction such as audio, as being "computer generated reality content" (CGR) or "mixed reality" (MR).

How many users do Spotify, Apple Music and other big music streaming services have?

Article | February 19, 2020

Sometimes the statistics around how many people are streaming music – and how many are paying for it – can lead to confusion and misinterpretation. Recently, for example, we’ve seen one story suggesting that Amazon was “on course to overtake Apple Music” based on comparing an Amazon figure from January 2020 with one from Apple that hadn’t been updated since June 2019.
