Apple's Stock Rises After Announcing New Software Updates
Apple's stock price increased by 2.5% on Tuesday after the company unveiled new software updates for its products at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

Alchemy was previously a third-party plugin that cost $199, but now it is integrated into Logic Pro X for free.
10 new features for iTunes include improved music discovery, personalized playlists, lyrics support, family sharing, Apple Music integration, and more. iTunes is also redesigned to be simpler and faster.
