Apple is updating its Apple Music subscription service next month to support both Spatial Audio and Lossless Audio. The Spatial Audio feature supports Dolby Atmos and reproduces sound so it seems to come "from all around and from above". The Lossless Audio uses the proprietary Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC) to encode audio with much greater fidelity, including higher bitrates, higher sampling rates, and no compression artifacts. Several quality levels are available, starting at "CD quality", on up to "Hi-Resolution Lossless" offering 24 bits and 192 kHz. Lossless audio will be available for "Apple Music's catalog of more than 75 million songs". Spatial Audio will be available for "thousands of tracks, ... with more added regularly". Both new features will be available at no extra cost starting next month.
