Apple Could Remove Explicit Lyrics In Your Streaming Music

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) published Apple’s latest patent application on Thursday, describing how the company could manage, replace, and remove “explicit lyrics” in streaming audio. The tech giant’s application describes how the feature would replace the explicit lyrics on the fly with a simple “beep.” Apple posits it could also replace the content with a clean version of the song or silence the vocal track for the moment. – Don Reisinger, Fortune Magazine
