Apple Music has officially announced that starting in June, they will be bringing lossless music quality options to its whole catalog. Lossless quality shall be available for over 75 million songs in the Apple Music library. Apple utilizes Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC) in order to preserve every bit of the original audio file. Lossless audio means Apple Music subscribers would be able to listen to music the same way artists created them in the studio.
They are also going to add Spatial Audio music with support for Dolby Atmos. Spatial Audio gives artists the opportunity to make immersive audio experiences for their listeners with true multidimensional sound and clarity. Dolby Atmos is an innovative, immersive audio experience that allows artists to mix music so the sound comes from above and from all around.
What’s great about this is that these new features will be available for Apple Music subscribers starting in June – at no extra cost!
Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats Oliver Schusser said, “Apple Music is making its biggest advancement ever in sound quality. Listening to a song in Dolby Atmos is like magic. The music comes from all around you and sounds incredible. Now we are bringing this truly innovative and immersive experience to our listeners with music from their favorite artists like J Balvin, Gustavo Dudamel, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Kacey Musgraves, The Weeknd, and so many more. Subscribers will also be able to listen to their music in the highest audio quality with Lossless Audio. Apple Music as we know it is about to change forever.”
