, IoT, The next generation of sound: Apple Music to rollout Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos

Today Apple has announced that Apple Music has teamed with Dolby Atmos to release a new audio quality to Apple Music’s subscribers.

Today Apple has announced that it will leverage Dolby Atmos to roll out a Spatial Audio from June 2021. Over 75mn songs will be available to subscribers in Lossless Audio, the way the music artists created them in the studio. Apple Music will be released in ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) to preserve every bit of the original audio file.

According to Apple, Apple Music will automatically play Dolby Atmos tracks on all AirPods and Beats headphones with an H1 or W1 chip, as well as the built-in speakers in the latest versions of iPhone, iPad, and Mac. This music portfolio will be ever-expanding and clearly identifiable by a badge on the description page.

“Today marks the introduction of Dolby Atmos on Apple Music — a new music experience that is transforming how music is created by artists and enjoyed by their fans,” said Kevin Yeaman, Dolby Laboratories’ president and CEO. “We are working with Apple Music to make Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos widely available to all musicians and anyone who loves music.”
