Apple Music, the functions that are still missing expected in 2023

Apple Music, the functions that are still missing expected in 2023. Since it existed (it was 2015), Apple Music has improved considerably, but there is still a long way to go, and this is also demonstrated by the fact that two highly anticipated features that are already offered by Spotify.

Android phones mess with power supplies, iPhone often charges faster

The crossfade

One of these glaring omissions on the iPhone and iPad is crossfade support, a feature that Apple has actually been offering for decades, dating back to the days of the iPod, but for some strange reason it still isn’t on Apple Music.

For those unfamiliar with it, the crossfade allows a song to gradually increase its volume as it starts while the previous one fades out just as slowly; this basically eliminates the gaps of silence between songs. There are apps that allow you to adjust the duration of this fade effect: for example on the Mac it can be set to a value between 1 second and 12 seconds.

Making this gap even more bizarre is the fact that crossfading for Apple Music is available on Mac and Android, so the question is why hasn’t Apple extended this feature to iPhone and iPad as well? Mystery.

The twin of Spotify Connect

For years, through the Connect function, Spotify has allowed you to use one device to remotely control listening to another, for example using the iPhone as a remote control to manage the music playing on the Mac.

Apple Music offers something similar on HomePod, but for now, compatibility stops there, so all the company’s other devices don’t have it. In an ideal world, however, you should be able to do the same thing on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV and so on.
