Apple in 2016 released a Music Memos app, designed to allow musicians and songwriters to record, analyze, and manipulate high-quality uncompressed audio directly on an iPhone or iPad.

Since its launch, Music Memos has seen few updates and has essentially been ignored by Apple, but today it got a minor update that adds support for the larger display of the ‌iPhone‌ X, XS, XS Max, and XR.

Before update on left, after update on right

Though the app's release notes only suggest stability improvements and bug fixes, The Verge's Chris Welch noticed that it's seen a compatibility update for the notched devices Apple has been making since 2017.


Prior to today's update, the app was last updated in September 2018, and before that, 2017. The Music Memos app has never received a significant update since its debut, and has been updated with only minor fixes, so many people may have forgotten that it exists at all.

Apple today also updated its Apple Support app with unspecified bug fixes and performance improvements.

The Music Memos app can be downloaded from the App Store for free [Direct Link], as can the Apple Support app [Direct Link].

Elaborate please?
Aperture replaced by limited Photos app.
Mail, never any new features there. Aliases? Nope, gotta use the even more limited web version of icloud mail.
Which brings up the rest of icloud/iwork, the web apps stink.
Podcast app was forgotten for years.
Their other Pro apps almost never see improvements.
The whole state of iOS 11 being a cluster from .01 to the end
iTunes and its components.. Ping. Connect. All garbage.
The Apple Maps rollout fiasco.
and on and on...

Today marks the day Apple updates products it had seemingly forgotten over the past few years. But only the unimportant ones.

Harsh title, lol. Not saying unfair, but a callout nonetheless.

Yet another example that Apple's software ain't what it used to be. Shame really.
