Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and news from Gear Patrol Studios.

Apple has announced a new karaoke function called Apple Music Sing, which allows Apple Music subscribers to sing along to their favorite songs with vibrant, real-time lyrics. Users can choose from multiple lyric views and select songs from an "ever-expanding catalog" that currently features tens of millions of songs. Apple Music Sing also allows users to adjust the volume of a song’s vocal tracks to either sing along with the original artist or take the lead themselves. "Duet View" allows several friends to tackle multi-singer tracks. The new feature will launch later this month to Apple Music subscribers, where it can be used on iPhones, iPads and on the new Apple TV 4K.
