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...

Embarrassing and telling. Too embarrassed to even admit it in release notes. What a joke.

Apple’s Shortcuts app doesn’t even work from the Widget page.

Some QA engineer was doing a full iOS 13 regression in preparation for WWDC and just noticed this was never updated for the notch..

I love this app. I use it daily for ideas. I was worried they were going to forget about it.

The team that made this was pulled to make games that stroke Warren Buffet’s ego. Now that is finished they can get back to work on their one true passion: making musical memos.

How in the world do you have a viewpoint where this is either embarrassing or telling? It's an app whose functionality has nothing to do with its graphical capabilities, easily pushed to the last in line when it comes to something like this. Then the fantasy you dream up while running with that nonsense... Is there any other company you make comments about this way? Because I'd love to see them, mostly to conclude my notion that you have absolutely no idea about the tech industry.

Chill out. Apple has required both new and updated apps to support the iPhone X display since July 2018. That they fail to follow their own rules is, in fact, both embarrassing and telling.
