Taylor Swift’s ‘1989 World Tour LIVE’ Film Announced as Apple Music Exclusive

As her world tour promoting the 2014 album „1989“ came to an end this month, singer Taylor Swift took to twitter to announce an upcoming collaboration between herself and Apple Music in the form of a new concert film called „The 1989 World Tour LIVE.“ The backstage film will be published exclusively on Apple Music on December 20.

The Apple Music exclusive documentary was filmed on one leg of Swift’s world tour, at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Austrailia on November 28, 2015. The film will include the singer’s entire performance from the Sydney show with surprise musical and celebrity guest stars and „never before seen footage filmed backstage.“ The singer was known for surprising fans with big-name cameos during the 1989 World Tour, and the Sydney show was no different, including artists like Alanis Morissette, Steven Tyler, and Wiz Khalifa.

Swift and Apple Music had an initially rocky relationship, beginning with the announcement of Apple Music’s three-month free trial, which would have seen artists go unpaid for the trial period while users streamed their songs an unlimited amount of times without paying them anything. Swift wrote down her opinion on the matter in an open letter to Apple, subsequently inspiring the Cupertino company to reverse course on the decision and ultimately bringing 1989 to the streaming service over the summer.

With today’s announcement of a full feature behind-the-scenes documentary appearing exclusively on Apple Music, and the release of 1989 on the service in June, it seems the previous drama between the singer and Apple is water under the bridge. Fans will be able to watch the film beginning next Sunday on Apple Music, using an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, or Apple TV. Those who want to get a sneak peek can tune into Beats 1 at 9 AM PST tomorrow morning for a discussion between Swift and Zane Lowe regarding the creation of the new movie.

This is what a full-screen iPhone 7 could look like

There have been plenty of rumors about Apple creating a bezel-less iPhone, but a new concept by designers DeepMind, in collaboration with SvetApple, may be my favorite yet. It’s a nifty feature which would keep the iPhone looking like the current model — only with the neat addition of letting users enlarge photos and video right to the edge of their […]

Video Review: Catalyst’s Waterproof Case Keeps Your iPhone 6 Dry, but With Some Drawbacks

For our latest video review, we went hands-on with a waterproof iPhone 6 Plus case from Catalyst, which the company calls „the most protective case in the world.“ It’s waterproof up to a depth of 5 meters (16.4 feet) and it’s also shock and drop resistant, made from polycarbonate with a rubber bumper and silicone seals.

In our testing, the Catalyst case lived up to its claims and kept our iPhone safe when we stuck it in a sink full of water, but in our opinion, this isn’t a case you’re going to want to use on a daily basis.

It’s protective, but that comes at the expense of the thin and svelte form of the iPhone. Catalyst’s case adds a lot of bulk, plus it makes the volume and the power buttons nearly impossible to use because the material it’s made of is so rigid. We also had a harder time using the iPhone’s touch screen due to the air gap between the protective cover and the display.

Catalyst’s waterproof case may not be ideal for every day use, but it’s a great option for situations where water protection is essential. You can use this case to take photos at the beach, in the pool, while snorkeling, and more, and your device will be protected from water, dust, dirt, and other elements.

The iPhone 6 Plus case is available in several different colors from the Catalyst website, and it’s priced at $74.99. There’s also an iPhone 6 version, which is priced at $69.99, and there are several accessories available for purchase like a floating lanyard, an audio adapter, and replacement parts.
