Yes, the clock finally struck midnight on October 21st and just like that, Taylor Swift’s 10th studio album – Midnights – landed on streaming platforms everywhere. And for Apple Music fans in particular, it’s mixed in Dolby Atmos with the ability to play in Spatial Audio.
What does this mean? Well, when you listen on a pair of AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, you get spatial audio with head tracking that intelligently reads Dolby instructions to place music around you. In return you get an immersive mix that, combined with iOS 16, will actually customize to your ears.
You can stream Midnights or Midnights specials (3am Edition) right now on Apple Music. And if you’re looking for a new set of earbuds, second-generation AirPods Pro are discounted right now.

Taylor Swift describes Midnights as “a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terror and sweet dreams” on her social media accounts. The main album consists of 13 songs – a significant number – and the 3am edition brings it to a total of 20 tracks.
Want to unlock a spatial, head-tracked audio listening experience? The AirPods Pro are the most convenient way, and they also let you double the immersion with noise cancellation turned on. Right now, the AirPods Pro has a $ 10 discount on Amazon for $ 239.99.
Basically, using the accelerometers built into the earbuds and the connected device like an iPhone, they work to dynamically play the audio around you. Think of it as your iPhone representing the center microphone that Swift is accessing and instruments flowing left or right.
They will quickly pair with your iPhone; just open the case and then they will sync to your iCloud account. This way you can experience a seamless connection on any Apple device.
AirPods Pro also offers the best quality we’ve tested, active noise cancellation, and a very clever transparency mode. You can also expect over six hours of battery life on a single listen.
And if you’re looking for an over-ear experience, you can opt for AirPods Max which cost just $ 449 on Amazon.
Taylor Swift x Apple Fitness +
Now, in addition to streaming Midnights, a new “artist spotlight series” will be launched on Apple’s Fitness + streaming service starting October 24. And you guessed it, Taylor Swift is the artist in question. The cycling, dance, HIIT, pilates, rowing, strength, yoga, core and treadmill workouts will all feature songs by Taylor Swift, including songs from “Midnights”.
In a HIIT workout with trainer Anja Garcia, you will work with intervals that last 13 seconds. Likewise, in a treadmill workout with trainer Scott Carvin, the first letter of each tip will come together to spell “SWIFTIE”.
You can expect more Taylor Swift-themed classes to launch for three weeks as well. With iOS 16.1, you will be able to use Fitness + on your iPhone and receive only one Move ring, and on Apple Watch you will have the full experience. Check out our full Apple Watch SE and Series 8 review here. Target Circle members can get up to four months of Apple Fitness + for free.
