In iOS 12 in the standard Music application, it became possible to search for songs by their text. With the new function, users will be able to more easily find the desired tracks by several words. The application will automatically select the song according to the text you entered.
With iOS 10, lyrics appeared in the Music app, and later they were added to iTunes in macOS Sierra 10.12. In iOS 12, text search was also added. A new useful feature became available in the fifth beta version of the update, which was released a couple of days ago.
Now you can easily find the songs you want in the catalog of over 40 million tracks, as well as search through your saved songs.
