Apple has acquired a music startup that could bring some interesting audio features to its product lineup.
As reported by Bloomberg, the company has acquired UK-based called AI Music, a startup that uses artificial intelligence to generate dynamic soundtracks that are tailor-made for the user. According to the report, Apple acquired the company and its twenty-plus employees within the last few weeks.
It's currently unclear what the technology will be used for under Apple. It could find its way into Apple Music, Apple Fitness+, Garageband, Logic, and a whole host of other scenarios that called for music to dynamically change on what the user wants from it.
AI Music is the latest music-related acquisition Apple has recently made. Last year, the company acquired Primephonic, a classical music app that is anticipated to be released as a standalone music app or as a new side of Apple Music.
