Spotify Update Brings Support For iOS 6, More Stations On iPad



It’s likely to be at least a month before Apple releases iOS 6 to the public, and so it’s unlikely apps will receive iOS 6 support for a few weeks yet. But Spotify is getting its update out of the way early. Its latest iOS release — version 0.5.4 — brings iOS 6 support, more radio stations on the iPad, and bug fixes.

The update’s release notes detail all the changes:

A lot of folks like the iOS 6 support we’ve brought to this update. We do too. But we also like:

• New: iPad users can now show more stations.
• Fixed: Login issues for users who only ever log in with Facebook.
• Fixed: Improved stability.
• Fictitious: This version is available in chocolate, strawberry or vanilla.

If you’re running the iOS 6 beta, then, and you previously experienced issues with the Spotify app, those should now be gone.

But it’s interesting that Spotify would choose to make iOS 6 support available so soon. There’s still a long way to go before the software is made public, and there’s a good chance Apple will make additional changes than render some apps unstable again. Developers don’t normally release support for new iOS releases until at least the Golden Master seed has been pushed to developers.

Oh well, I’m not complaining.
