Apple Music could soon get a HiFi music streaming tier that will include reinforce for Dolby Atmos, Dolby Audio, and ‘lossless’ audio, according to a new outline. The outline says that the new update to Apple Music will debut with iOS 14.6, which is currently under beta testing. A separate outline claims that Apple Music HiFi reinforce will be announced in the “coming weeks”, along side the third-generation AirPods. It’s also being speculated that the new announcements could take place at WWDC 2021, which is scheduled for June.
A outline by 9to5Mac claims that Apple is working on introducing a HiFi plan for Apple Music which may be introduced to subscribers with the release of iOS 14.6. The journal says that it has found a new code added to the Apple Music app in the first build of iOS 14.6 that specifically mentions “Dolby Atmos,” “Dolby Audio,” and “Lossless”. Up until now, Apple didn’t feature reinforce for Dolby but only supported its internal HiFi audio codec ALAC.
HiFi files have less audio compression and thereby are capable of a higher sound quality output. Spotify recently announced that it is usually venturing into high-quality audio streaming with Spotify HiFi. It is speculated that Spotify will price the Spotify HiFi plan higher than its existing subscriptions.
A music site Hits Day-to-day Double has cited sources to claim that Apple will introduce the HiFi streaming reinforce for Apple Music along side third-generation AirPods in the coming weeks. But this contradicts analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s claim that the new AirPods are likely to launch in Q3 2021.
The outline also claims that Apple may offer the HiFi audio streaming reinforce on Apple Music without increasing its subscription cost that starts at $9.99 per month for the individual tier in america and Rs. 99 in India.
