Burberry Becomes First Major Fashion Brand With an Apple Music Channel
Burberry is launching a curated channel on Apple Music, making it the first luxury fashion house to do so. The Burberry Apple Music channel is listed under "Curator Playlists," which also includes content from brands and media sites like GQ, Wired, Pitchfork, and Rolling Stone.
Content provided by Burberry includes selections from company's current CEO, Christopher Bailey, along with music played on the Burberry runway and a selection of emerging British talent.
Burberry is the first clothing company to debut an Apple Music channel, but it's not an unusual choice due to its Burberry Acoustic campaign, which supports new British music talent and features acoustic tracks recorded exclusively for Burberry. Burberry employs a full-time music team that works on Burberry Acoustic and matches up artists with record labels.
According to the The New York Times, going forward, the Burberry channel will feature performances, songs, and films that have come out of Burberry's work with artists on Burberry Acoustic. The channel's first exclusive will come from emerging British artists set to perform at the Burberry Womenswear show on September 21.
"I am excited about our partnership with Apple on this amazing platform which will enable us to take what we do now with Burberry Acoustic and share it with an even bigger audience," Christopher Bailey, Burberry's chief executive, said in a statement.
Burberry and Apple have had a long partnership, first teaming up in 2013 to show off the photographic capabilities of the iPhone 5s. Angela Ahrendts, Apple's current head of retail, was also the CEO of Burberry until the Spring of 2014 when she joined Apple. Burberry's new Apple Music channel marks the first collaboration between Apple and Burberry since her departure.
As previously rumored, the next-generation iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a unified volume button and a mute button, according to leaked CAD images shared in a video on the Chinese version of TikTok and posted to Twitter by ShrimpApplePro.

Apple says iOS 16.4 is coming in the spring, which began this week. In his Sunday newsletter, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said the update should be released "in the next three weeks or so," meaning a public release is likely in late March or early April.
iOS 16.4 remains in beta testing and introduces a handful of new features and changes for the iPhone. Below, we have recapped five new features ...
A first-generation iPhone still sealed inside its box sold for $54,904 at auction, which is more than $54,000 over the original $599 price tag of the device when it was released in 2007.
The original iPhone was put up for sale by RR Auction on behalf of a former Apple employee who purchased it back when it first came out. Back in February, an original, sealed iPhone sold for over $63,000,...
The iOS 16.4 update that is set to be released to the public in the near future includes voice isolation for cellular calls, according to notes that Apple shared today.
Apple says that Voice Isolation will prioritize your voice and block out the ambient noise around you, making for clearer phone calls where you can better hear the person you're chatting with and vice versa.
While year-over-year iPhone upgrades are not always groundbreaking, new features can begin to stack up over multiple generations. For example, the iPhone 15 Pro will be a notable upgrade for those who still have a three-year-old iPhone 12 Pro.
If you are still using an iPhone 12 Pro and are considering upgrading to the iPhone 15 Pro when it launches later this year, we have put together a...

You do realise that there are channels/playlists curated by magazines/websites on Apple Music? What is the difference between one curated by staff say at Wired, Pitchfork, or Vogue and one curated by a store?
I'm left wondering why you referenced Steve Jobs-you do realise he died in 2011.
I wish we could 'down-vote' certain posts here.
When you hire a "bozo" (such as Angela) it leads to a bozo explosion. Bozos doing bozo things and hiring bozos. Good call Steve.

I get get all the marketing venues that open up by allowing brands to connect in this way. The problem is, this service is so far away from being primetime it's not funny.
My experience is COMPLETELY different on each platform. Desktop, Browser, Apple TV, iPhone, iPad. It's all a giant headache. Things are still not working correctly, everything has a different name. Where is Apple Music? My search to find that on each platform begins this painful endeavor. Sometimes I can purchase a song, sometimes it lets me preview, sometimes I can stream it. Playlists are broken. The content is a mess. The feed looks like garbage.

Apple has taken away many things needed as a professional to streamline products for the consumer. Then they have added many things to the consumer that are confusing. I get that Ives has made this design focused, and the coding and ideas have taken a backseat. It's time to hire someone with a vision that isn't incremental stock advancement. HP did that for years. This is Apple for pete's sake. Innovate. Never, stop, innovating.
