The latest Spotify update is here and it finally includes support for iPhone XR, iPhone XS Max and the Apple Watch Series 4 screen sizes. After this update, the app’s most recent version will be 8.4.45. Let’s take a look at what’s new.
Spotify will now have support for the Apple Watch Series 4 and iPhone XR / XS Max displays
The new version also comes with some bug fixes and improvements, as well as with support for the most recent iPad Pro models. A few months ago, Spotify added Apple Watch support for the first time and now the company is offering support for the Apple Watch Series 4, which has a larger screen size. Until now, the Spotify app supported only the smaller displays of the Apple Watch. However, Spotify’s Apple Watch still remains just a controller for your iPhone. This means that users cannot play music straight from the Apple Watch and also they cannot stream over the LTE connection of the smartwatch.
When it comes to the iPhones, until the most recent update, users of the smartphones had two options: they could either activate UI stretching to be able to enjoy an all-screen experience or they would just have to get used to the black bars around the Spotify app. Now, thanks to the new update, users will no longer have to go through this.
