Chicago rapper Chief Keef isn’t the biggest Apple fan right about now. The hip-hop star has the Internet in tears after firing off a low-key diss toward every iPhone user’s fave tech company.
Keef hit up Instagram this week to throw a little shade at Apple’s latest iPhone release presumably over its camera quality.

This week, buzz developed over Apple gearing up to possibly put an end to its iTunes LP section.
Apple will no longer accept new submissions of iTunes LPS after March 2018,’ it wrote. ‘Existing LPs will be deprecated from the store during the remainder of 2018. Customers who have previously purchased an album containing an iTunes LP will still be able to download the additional content using iTunes Match. (Venture Beat)
The move ultimately gives more attention and spotlight to the company’s growing Apple Music service.
Apple’s attention has rightfully shifted to its subscription music service Apple Music which includes similar elements to iTunes LP. Apple Music added support for displaying lyrics in a recent software update, and Apple Music Connect lets artists share photos and videos with fans in real-time (although the social feature has not proven overly popular).

According to Apple’s website, the iTunes LP service provides users with a multimedia experience for their fave albums.
