iOS 18 Could Include A New Apple Music Smart Song Transition Feature

Apple is strongly expected to be working on the launch of a new iOS 18 software update this fall and it’s likely that we will see the company also preview that software update at WWDC next month.

We’ve been hearing various new tidbits about the potential launch and what features could be offered, and a new report hints at Apple Music improvements on the way.

According to a new AppleInsider report, Apple will launch new “smart song transitions,” a feature that will be an upgraded version of the existing crossfade option.

Smart Song Transitions will take this feature even further, by giving users the option to adjust the duration of the crossfade effect. Song transitions can be made to last anywhere from one to twelve seconds, depending on personal preference.

The current crossfade option will apparently remain in place and users will be able to disable smart song transitions should they decide that they want to go that route.

If Apple sticks to its usual release pattern we should expect that it will announce the new iOS 18 software at WWDC before putting it through months of beta testing. Then, the update will likely be made available for download by everyone with a compatible iPhone in September.

Alongside the new iPhone software, we should also expect there to be new versions of software for the Mac, Apple Watch, iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Vision Pro.
