For example, a 128GB microSD card that effectively doubles the space of Apple’s largest preconfigured option can cost as little as $13 on

Today’s update also includes a full schedule of Beats 1 shows and adds new browsing options for Composers and Compilations, which Apple says helps surface classical music and movies soundtrack
