Coming a day earlier than expected, Apple today officially announced that Apple Music subscribers can now enjoy spatial audio on the service thanks to Dolby Atmos support. Also, lossless audio will be coming to the entire Apple Music catalog, the company added.
UPDATING, PLEASE REFRESH MANUALLY.
The announcement on Apple’s website says that the new lossless audio encoding and spatial audio with Dolby Atmos are coming to Apple Music subscribers in June 2021 at no additional cost.
For new subscribers, this will be a $9.99 per month option after free trial.
Thousands of tracks will be available in spatial audio with Dolby Atmos at launch, with more added regularly. The iPhone maker has confirmed that the whole Apple Music catalog of more than 75 million songs will be available in lossless audio. More specifically, 20 million songs will be made in lossless audio at launch, with the full 75 million songs available by the end of the year.
From the fine print:
Not all content is available in Dolby Atmos. Accessing Dolby Atmos features requires Dolby Atmos–capable devices. Playback quality will depend on hardware, audio accessories, and internet connection.
