- Rewound is a music player that lets you easily control a variety of settings with one touch.

- Rewound is available for free through the Apple App Store.
Updated December 16, 2019: Apple has pulled the app from the store. It doesn't work anymore either.
A few days ago, The Verge and other outlets highlighted an upcoming app called Rewound that let you skin your iPhone into an iPad. By downloading free skins — and changing the way navigation works in the app — you can convert your iPhone into an iPod Classic or even an iPod: U2 Edition.
Rebound is finally available on the Apple App Store and is free at the moment. The listing says that there are in-app purchases, but we were unable to access them at this time. Maybe they'll be added with a future update to remove possible advertisements. Only time will tell, and we'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
Once you've downloaded the app, head over to settings and select Skin. This will allow you to superimpose an image onto the bottom half of the app and reorganize the navigation. If you search for the hashtag #rewoundskins on Twitter, you'll be able to download a number of them from users who have created them. Just save the images to Photos. Our favorites are the black, iPod Classic skin from Mike Crumbella and the iPod: U2 Edition skin from DonationBuilder.
If you want to go back in time to a simpler time, be sure to check out the Rewound music player. We've been playing around with it for a few hours now and absolutely love it. Hopefully, a future update will allow you to customize it even further, like changing fonts or adding a glass effect to top half of the app.
It's finally here
Rewound is a music player for your Apple Music library. Easily browse and play your music with customizable on-screen buttons and gestures. Spotify support is coming soon.
The new standard
This is the new iPhone, not the pro, not the low.
The iPhone 11 is more akin to a replacement for the iPhone XS than the iPhone XR. It's powered by the newest processor, has the latest two-lens camera system, and comes in at an affordable starting price. It's the perfect iPhone for most people.
Most Pro ever
For the most discerning tech nerds around.
Not everyone needs this pro-level iPhone, but for those of you that need OLED, can't live without the triple-lens camera system, and thinks 4x4 MIMO LTE is where it's at, let me introduce you to my friend, the iPhone 11 Pro.
