Apple's Launch Event Short On Music Details

(Hypebot) – There were no major Apple Music announcements or Beats hardware launches at today's Apple launch event. But there were a number of important announcements about how music is consumed and shared across Apple devices.

  • Apple is renaming its retail stores “Apple Town Squares” with greater emphasis on classes, and workshops.

  • Apple Watch OS4 has "completely revamped music experience" via cellular built in to new watches. Available 9/19. No details offered.
  • 40 millions songs available via Apple Music on new the new Apple Watch. (Won't this be as annoying as walking around playing an AM radio?)
  • Apple is bringing Augmented Reality to the iPhone8. (Gaming is the first example, but so much is possible.)
