Secret Apple Music Hacks

Secret Apple Music Hacks

Apple Music is a popular music streaming service with tons of features to enhance your listening experience. Apple constantly rolls updates to ensure users can get more out of this service. If you want to improve the volume while using the service on Mac, you can use macOS sound equalizer like Boom 3D. This will help equalize the volume and improve the sound output. 

If you want to enhance your music-listening experience on Apple Music, here are the tips and tricks you must know. 

Custom Alarms 

If you dislike the sounds or have exhausted the sounds found in the clock application, you can look toward Apple Music to help you set custom alarms. You can select any song from the service and set it as your alarm ringtone. 

Go to the Clock app on your device > alarm tab > edit to select which alarm you wish to change > tap sound > choose the song from the Apple Music library. 

Use 3D Touch for the Menus 

Apple Music’s UI is minimalistic and clean. Like Apple menus and apps, the simple features are typically hidden in plain sight. However, if you use an iPhone 6s or later, you can use 3D touch by pressing the playlist firmly or artist, which will bring up the quick actions menu. Here, you can queue the song, view the lyrics, and more. 

Access iCloud Music Library 

With the Apple Music paid subscription, you can access the iCloud Music library. This allows you to store up to 100,000 songs in the cloud, which is separate from your regular iCloud storage. 

Whatever you say to the iCloud Music Library will give you access to the saved songs on up to ten devices. 

Lossless Audio 

Thanks to Apple Lossless Audio, you can enjoy music in high-resolution quality of up to 24-bit/192kHz. Furthermore, ALAC is used, and this is optimized for iPhones. 

If you are an audiophile, audio accuracy is what you are seeking, and Lossless Audio is an excellent feature that can take your music-listening experience to the next level. This feature maximizes the capabilities of the audio gear, and you can experience sound quality close to the original. 

However, if you truly want to experience the Lossless Audio feature, you must listen to the tracks using a pair of good wired speakers or headphones. If you stream music via wireless headphones or earbuds, this feature will not work. This is because Bluetooth doesn’t have the bandwidth to play lossless audio files. 

Furthermore, your device must be supplemented with an external DAC, or it cannot play Hi-Res audio. You must also check your Internet connection. As lossless audio files are larger in size, they require a fast Internet connection and can eat up to 2900MB an hour. Ensure this is not too much for your Internet connection. 

Lossless audio is supported on iPhones running iOS 14.6 or later. Therefore, update your device to leverage this feature and have an amazing listening experience. 

If you are listening to Apple Music on your Mac, go to the Playback setting of the app in the general settings menu and check the box next to Lossless audio in the Audio Quality section. Then, choose Streaming and opt for high-resolution lossless or lossless quality and click continue. Next, follow the prompts on the screen. 

Are you using your iPhone to listen to Apple Music? You can go to your iOS Settings > select Apple Music or Music > choose Audio Quality > tap the Lossless audio toggle > choose Wi-Fi streaming, and you can opt for Hi-Res Lossless or Lossless quality > tap continue if you chose Hi-Res Lossless > tap the blue audio quality navigator. 

Use Siri 

If you use Apple Music on your iOS device, you can utilize Siri to navigate the app effortlessly. Siri will act like your private DJ, and you can ask her to play any playlist or song of your choice. 

No matter what track you want to hear, you only need to tell Siri, and she will take care of the rest. This exonerates you from typing, searching, and tapping. Instead, everything will be done by using your voice. 

Love or Dislike songs 

You can help Apple Music understand the kind of music you like and your music taste by marking playlists, albums, and songs with either Dislike or Love tags. You can do this by tapping the three dots icon and marking them according to your preferences. This will help Apple Music to learn your decisions and customize future recommendations. 

The Bottom Line 

These Apple Music hacks are hidden in plain sight. You can tweak the settings and use these features to enhance your music-listening experience. Also, you can use Apple’s voice assistant to quit typing and tapping. 

Furthermore, you can use wired headphones to listen to the highest quality music.
