If you tried Apple Music a few years ago, you might have quickly switched back to Spotify. Apple’s option felt bare and wasn’t very good. But Apple Music, which costs $9.99 per month, has improved a lot, with better ways to discover and share new music. There are a few neat tricks hidden away, too.
Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal said Apple Music has more paying subscribers than ever, and reportedly passed Spotify in the U.S. with 28 million paid subscribers to Spotify’s 26 million in the U.S.
Since it comes pre-installed on iPhones, iPads and Macs, it’s an enticing service to people who own Apple products. It’s also available on Android if you prefer. Plus, Verizon has been offering a free subscription to new subscribers, which has likely increased its base.
Apple Music has a library of music videos that you can stream or download to watch later. You can find some to add to your library by doing this:
Tap the browse tab on the bottom of Apple Music.
Scroll down to Music Videos.
Browse through different genres.
If you want to search for a specific one, tap the search tab on the home screen and then scroll down to the “Music Videos” section.
Tap a + button to add a music video to your library.
Once it’s in your library, you can download it by tapping the cloud icon next to the video. This lets you play it even if you don’t have an internet connection.
