“Apple Music is making its biggest breakthrough ever in terms of sound quality” explains the vice president of Apple Music to present this new version.
It’s official ! After weeks intense rumors About a new HiFi offer for Apple Music, the Cupertino company has just made it official on its website. This new offer is not really one. Rather, the basic package is evolving and will now offer high fidelity sound and other new features. This new version of Apple Music will be available in June for the same price, or € 9.99 for a single person.
Dolby Atmos, audio spatial et son HiFi
Audiophiles should appreciate. Apple Music will soon offer a large number of new features, including Dolby Atmos, which will be available from the outset on all AirPods and Beats headphones with an H1 or W1 chip, as well as on the built-in speakers of the latest versions of iPhone , iPad and Mac
We also note the arrival of spatial audio, landed with the AirPods Pro and also offered with AirPods Max on compatible content. We can now enjoy it on several thousand titles available on Apple Music. It will obviously be necessary to acquire a compatible device, such as, precisely, Apple’s first headphones whose launch was ultimately not so trivial.
But the great novelty of Apple Music is precisely this high-fidelity sound, without loss of quality, which can be enjoyed on nearly 75 million songs available on the service, and not only with AirPods Pro or AirPods. Max! For this, Apple uses the ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) format in 16 bits and 44.1 kHz – that is, a quality equivalent to CD – and even beyond, up to 24 bits 48 kHz. For the more audiophiles among you, Apple Music will also offer high-resolution lossless sound up to 24-bit 192 kHz with a DAC. In the information communicated, Apple does not indicate if this codec will be supported in Bluetooth, but we imagine that the wire will still be privileged to take full advantage of it.
All these new features will land in June 2021 for all Apple Music subscribers and those to come at no additional cost.
