- Apple Music subscribers can now listen to Dolby Atmos spatial audio and lossless songs
- The subscribers do not need to pay anything extra to enjoy the premium music.
- Apple Music is making its biggest advancement ever in sound quality.
Apple Music is making its biggest advancement ever in sound quality, “Listening to a song in Dolby Atmos is like magic”. Now they are providing a truly innovative and immersive experience to listeners with music from their favorite artists like J Balvin, Gustavo Dudamel, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Kacey Musgraves and so many more at no extra cost. Subscribers will also be able to listen to their music in the highest audio quality with Lossless Audio.”
Subscribers will have access to 75 million songs in Lossless audio at no additional cost from June 2021. This means that subscriptions will remain fixed at $9.99 per month, per user. With regards to Dolby Atmos support, Apple says thousands of tracks will be available in Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos at launch, with new additions on a regular basis.
The move is clearly aimed at Spotify, the world’s most popular music streaming service. Earlier this year, Spotify announced its premium “HiFi” tier, allowing music listeners to experience more depth and clarity in their songs.
Lossless music takes a lot more data than regular streaming music, which is why you should check the storage on your iPhone before you download music at lossless quality.
How Apple Music subscribers can use the Lossless feature?
If you want to listen to music using Apple Music’s lossless audio codec, you will need to connect your wired earphones (with the lightning connector) and then head over to Settings > Music and then enable Lossless or Hi-Res Lossless under Audio Quality. None of the previously mentioned wireless earphones and headphones will support Apple Music Lossless at 24-bit and 48kHz – not even the AirPods Max when connected via the included Lighting cable.
In response to Apple’s decision to make Apple Music Lossless available to users at no additional cost, Amazon has announced it will no longer charge an additional fee for Amazon Music HD. Lossless streaming will be available to all Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers at the standard rate.
