Apple Announces High-Quality Music Service for June | Digital Trends Spanish
Manzana officially announced the launch of its high fidelity (Hi-Fi) music service. The news includes Spatial Audio and Lossless Audio, for its streaming musical.
Thus, users will have access to high definition sound from June and without any additional cost.
The company announced that it will have 75 million lossless audio songs in its catalog by the end of the year and 20 million already available to enjoy.
How will it work?
To enable lossless audio, subscribers must be running the latest version of Apple Music. For this, they can go to Settings> Music> Audio quality.
Here you can choose between different options for various types of resolutions, such as cell phone, Wi-Fi or for download.
According an article of The Verge, Apple Music lossless audio starts at CD quality, which is 16-bit at 44.1 kHz and goes up to 24-bit at 48 kHz natively on Apple devices.
The maximum is 24 bits at 192 kHz. For maximum lossless file quality, there is an important task: Subscribers will need external equipment to enjoy 24-bit 192kHz files, including a USB digital-to-analog converter.
Lossless audio has become a trend among different applications of streaming of music. Thus, Amazon has just announced that it will make Amazon Music HD available to subscribers of Amazon Music Unlimited for free.
For its part, Spotify plans to launch its HiFi service at the end of this year.
