Apple delays the release of upcoming ‘Carpool Karaoke’ spin-off

Carpool Karaoke

With a whole lot of hoopla, Apple in January of last year excitedly announced that it was turning the popular "Carpool Karaoke" segment from The Late Late Show with James Corden into a new show available exclusively for Apple Music subscribers. While Apple's plans in the TV space have long been frustratingly nebulous, the marriage of "Carpool Karaoke" and Apple Music seemed like a strategic step in the right direction.

Apple Delays Launch of ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Series

Apple has delayed the release of "Carpool Karaoke: The Series," its first original television series, reports Reuters. The series, which will premiere on Apple Music, was supposed to launch in April, but its debut has been delayed.

Apple, a company known for its precisely coordinated product launches, declined to explain the delays, but said in a statement that "Carpool Karaoke: The Series will premiere on Apple Music later this year."
Apple was originally planning to hold a premiere party for "Carpool Karaoke" in March, but the party was postponed. The party was then supposed to take place on Monday, but it was again pushed back due to the show's delayed launch.

"Carpool Karaoke: The Series" is based on the popular Carpool Karaoke segment from "The Late Late Show with James Corden." Apple purchased rights to the show back in mid-2016 and showed off the first trailer for the series in February of 2017.

The show, composed of 16 half-hour episodes, will feature celebrity pairs "riding along in a car together as they sing tunes from their personal playlists." According to Apple, the show's stars will also "surprise fans" who are not expecting to see "big stars belting out tunes one lane over."

"Carpool Karaoke: The Series" will star James Corden, Will Smith, Billy Eichner, Metallica, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Chelsea Handler, Blake Shelton, Michael Strahan, John Cena, Shaquille O'Neal, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, and more, with a different host for each episode.

Apple is aiming to drive more subscribers to Apple Music with "Carpool Karaoke," and the show, when it launches, will be available only to Apple Music subscribers.

Everything you need to know about Apple TV!

There was two parts to Steve Jobs' 2007 keynote. The first was iPhone. The second, Apple TV. Previously teased as iTV, back then it was a Mac-based, hard drive-equipped, iTunes sync box. Novel, but hardly the future. In 2010, Apple rebooted the TV. Basing it on iOS, it went all flash storage and all-streaming, all the time,. 2012 brought 1080p and then... nothing. For. Three. Long. Years. Finally, in 2015, Apple rebooted the TV again. Not with 4K, but with apps.

There's currently only one Apple TV model available, though it comes with two storage options: 32 KB or 64 KB.

Our recommendation: The Best Apple TV is the 64 GB model

Buying your Apple TV

The current Apple TV doesn't do 4K but it does do Siri and apps, and that makes it a significant improvement over the old Apple TV. Whether or not that means it'll be a compelling upgrade for everyone, and who can get away with the 32 GB version and who needs the full-on 64 GB version remain open questions for some. If you're one of them, we can help you figure out the answers!

Using your Apple TV

Apple TV seems simple. You buy it. You plug one end into the wall socket, the other end into your HDTV, and you're good to you. In theory. In reality, there's a bunch of settings you can tweak to make sure everything from the interface color to the streaming size is just to your liking, and several built-in apps like TV and Apple Music you're going to wnat to get to know really well.

Going beyond Apple TV

The box is just the beginning. The ultimate accessory for any Apple TV might be a game pad. Or it might be a whole new, whole bigger screen. Then there's the apps. So. Many. Apps. To get the most out of your Apple TV, you're going to want to trick it out. And trick it out right!

Apple Music announces Up Next feature today!

Today, Apple Music's official Twitter account introduced the world to its newest feature Up Next, which is meant to promote a different new-and-upcoming artist each month.

Note: This feature is not to be confused with the unrelated Up Next feature which allows you to see what track will play next in your queue.

This month Apple is teaming up with 6LACK — pronounced "black" — through a series of little projects to promote his newest album FREE 6BLACK.

The newer feature content can be accessed in the New Music section found in the Browse tab and features a variety of content including, a live performance from 6LACK, updated playlists with his music, a video interview with Zane Lowe from Beats one, and even a short documentary about 6LACK himself. You can watch the trailer for that documentary, which was released on the Apple Music Twitter account, below.

As someone who personally uses Apple Music as a way to discover new music all the time, I have to say I'm really digging Up Next! We've seen Apple promote major artists in the past with special events and partnerships, but this is specifically designed to shed light on artists who aren't as established.

My favorite part of Up Next is that Apple isn't just featuring one the artist's albums or singles, but it goes much deeper than that. By having such a variety of feature content, listeners are going to be able to develop a deeper connection with the artists that Up Next chooses to feature, which will not only by creating a buzz in the short term but also turning new listeners into dedicated fans that will be awaiting the artist's next release.

Not only does this help the artists make a splash in the giant ocean that is the music industry, but it also helps Apple Music subscribers broaden their horizons and listen to new artists. That's a classic win-win in my book!
