Apple Music’s recently announced voice plan will launch alongside iOS 15.2, according to patch notes the company shared for the candidate version of the update. The changelog was first spotted by MacStories editor-in-chief Federico Viticci. When Apple first announced the Most Affordable Tier at its fall Mac event in October, the company said it would be available “later this fall” in 17 countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada.
The plan will offer access to Apple Music’s entire song catalog for $ 5 per month, provided you’re willing to rely on Siri for control. You can play specific tracks and playlists, as well as full albums on your Apple devices. What the level does not offer is access to the Apple Music interface.
We’ve reached out to Apple to confirm their intention to launch the voice plan alongside iOS 15.2. The update will add a handful of other new features, including a toggle that allows iPhone 13 Pro owners to turn on and off the macro mode included in the camera. Based on the release candidate schedule, Apple is expected to release iOS 15.2 soon.
