The mention of “Apple Lossless,” “Free Lossless,” “Hi-Res Lossless,” and “Dolby Atmos” (as reported by 9ToMac) hints at support for high-quality music streaming on the app.
Although, it is suggested that not all songs will be able to give us a high-quality output. The ones that will do, will come with a label of ‘Has Lossless’ or ‘Has Atmos.’
For those who don’t know, the introduction of high fidelity audio in Apple Music was rumoured previously too. The rumour hints at a new subscription plan for the same, which is expected to be priced at $9.99 (around Rs 732) a month. If this is true, it will cost users the same as the current individual Apple Music plan.
With this, Apple will compete with the likes of Spotify, which recently announced a similar plan with the same high-quality audio benefits. The upcoming Spotify plan is expected to launch later this year.
While details aren’t concrete, this new Apple Music announcement is likely to be made tomorrow. If this happens, it is most likely to launch alongside the highly-rumoured AirPods 3, which will the company’s third-gen TWS earbuds.
The AirPods 3 is likely to come with a universal fit and a small stem, much like the AirPods Pro, with improved battery life, audio performance, and more.
