Spotify is coming to India soon

Global music-streaming giant Spotify has confirmed its impending India launch. During its ‘Investor Day’ presentation, Spotify Co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek revealed it was “working on launching in some of the biggest markets in the world”. These include India, Russia, countries in Africa, and others. Spotify’s recent IPO filing had revealed that it has already leased office space in Mumbai. Spotify’s interest in the Indian market comes at a time when global companies like Amazon, Google, Apple, and Netflix are aggressively expanding their base in the country. While Apple is increasingly focusing on localizing its Apple Music service, Amazon is boosting its catalog by partnering with local production houses and delivering original content.

Apple confirms use of Google Cloud for iCloud services

Apple has confirmed that it uses Google’s public cloud to store data for its iCloud services in iOS Security Guide last month

Apple had previously used remote data storage systems provided by Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. Apple’s edition of the iOS Security Guide in March 2017 listed Microsoft Azure instead of Google Cloud Platform.

The new edition describes its iCloud service: “The encrypted chunks of the file are stored, without any user-identifying information, using third-party storage services, such as AWS and Google Cloud Platform.”

The report doesn’t clearly state whether Apple uses any Google cloud services outside of storing photos and videos, nor does it give a start date for when Apple first made the switch.

According to the perspective of an Apple user, it really shouldn't affect us. Comparing the price charts of ICloud and Google Drive. ICloud is slightly above the line. 

This can be treated as the service charge for the encryption of photos and information but …

Everything You Need To Know About Apple Music

Apple Music is Apple's massive music service, comprising a subscription music catalog, iCloud Music Library syncing across your devices, Beats 1 live and algorithmic radio, customized playlists, and more artist exclusives than you can shake a stick at.

What is Apple Music? Apple Music is, to quote the company, "All the ways you love music. All in one place." In non-marketing lingo, Apple Music is built around two major components: iCloud Music Library, which combines your purchased music library and ripped tracks in one place; and the Apple Music streaming catalog, where you can find more than 10 million tracks from artists around the world. These two parts live side by side in the Music app: You can keep each separate by only streaming the Apple Music catalog, or you can add streaming songs to your offline Music library, where they can be mixed into playlists (offline or publicly shareable) or shuffled amongst the rest of your music. Apple Music also offers a massive r…

How to survive an iPhone with only 16GB of storage

Let's all agree that Apple continues to be cruel by equipping its entry-level iPhones with only 16GB of storage. Surely the company could afford to make 32GB the baseline without negatively impacting its bottom line. That said, we can also agree that, for a variety of reasons, you might be among the countless users who end up with a 16GB iPhone. Maybe it was all you could afford, or there was a deal that was too good to pass up. Perhaps you simply misjudged how much storage you'd need once you started shooting HD video or downloading YouTube vids for offline viewing.
1. Know your space hogs With space at a premium, it's crucial you learn what's consuming the most of it so you can act accordingly. Here are the biggest offenders: Photos and videosMusic and podcastsGames 2. Consider your pixels With every new iPhone, Apple touts higher-resolution sensors for capturing photos and videos. That's good news for quality, bad news for storage: More pixels means larger files…
