Apple Music will soon get a HiFi music streaming with Dolby Atmos, Dolby Audio, and ‘lossless’ audio support. According to the report, the Apple Music update will be released alongside iOS 14.6.
The next version of iOS is currently in Beta testing. According to another report, Apple Music HiFi support, as well as the third-generation AirPods, will be revealed in near future. It is also speculated that Apple may announce AirPods-3 and HiFi music at WWDC 2021, which is set to take place in June.
Meanwhile, According to a report by 9to5Mac, Apple is working on launching a HiFi plan for Apple Music, which will be available to subscribers with the release of iOS 14.6.
9to5Mac discovered new code in the Music app that explicitly references “Dolby Atmos,” “Dolby Audio,” and “Lossless” in the first beta version of iOS 14.6, which was released to developers last week.
Despite supporting HiFi audio codec ALAC, Apple has yet not included Dolby Atmos or Dolby Audio support in Apple Music.
HiFi songs, for those who are unfamiliar, have less audio compression, which implies they sound better and have more clarity. Spotify recently revealed that it is now working on a version with HiFi song access. Apple Music, on the other hand, currently only offers songs in AAC format with a bitrate of 256kbps.
According to the report, Apple can add HiFi audio streaming support to Apple Music without changing the subscription price, which currently begins at $9.99 per month for the individual tier in the United States and Rs. 99 in India
