Apple Music relaunches Kids & Music page to discover fun playlists for the whole family


Apple Music has updated its popular Kids & Family feature with dozens of new curated playlists along with fresh and vibrant new artwork to make it easier to get to the music that the whole family will enjoy.

Whether you’re in the car or keeping the kids entertained at home, managing bath time or organising a playdate, Apple Music Kids & Family allow you to enjoy thousands of songs that range from educational to motivational.

The new playlists include Kids Fit Fun, Playdate Fun and ABC Fun along with Pow! which is full of super hero songs, Princess Power for princess songs with messages of empowerment and even a classical music playlist your kids will love.

The flavour of children’s music has evolved so parents and kids can now enjoy lots of the same music.

Gone are the days when kids music was classed as lullabies and nursery rhymes.

Children’s music has taken a dramatic shift and is one of the fastest growing genres on Apple Music.

It has also become a handy tool for parents during the COVID pandemic with teams of experts updating playlists on a daily basis by music experts.

In Australia the top five most popular Apple Music Kids & Family playlists are Family Pop, Kids Dance Party, Family Dance Party, Family Road Trip and Baby Sleep.

Users can stream Apple Music on their iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, CarPlay, iPod, Mac and Apple TV.
