Apple Music Lossless tidbits like iOS 14.6, HomePod support, compatible headphones, more

AirPlay songs on Apple Music in Lossless from iPhone to HomePod is one of the amazing feature in iOS 14.6

When will Apple Music Lossless be available?

Apple announced in May that Apple Music will start supporting Dolby Atmos and Lossless audio quality in June. Here’s everything we know so far about Apple Music Lossless.

Apple Music Lossless is available since June 7 for all Apple Music subscribers at no extra cost. Users must install iOS 14.6, iPadOS 14.6, macOS 11.4, or tvOS 14.6 or later to take advantage of this new future.
Will HomePod support Apple Music Lossless?

HomePod and HomePod mini don’t support Lossless quality for now. The bigger smart speaker can only stream music in Dolby Atmos.

In a new support page, Apple says both products will receive a software update in the future to stream Lossless natively.

HomePod and HomePod mini currently use AAC to ensure excellent audio quality. Support for lossless is coming in a future software update.

What headphones will be compatible with Apple Music Lossless and Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos?

Apple says Dolby Atmos is supported by iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV using any pair of its headphones that feature the W1 and H1 chips. This includes AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, BeatsX, Beats Solo3 Wireless, Beats Studio3, Powerbeats3 Wireless, Beats Flex, Powerbeats Pro, and Beats Solo Pro, but there are a few differences.

AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, for example, can take advantage of a head-tracking feature with Dolby Atmos in iOS 15, which is currently in beta. Also in this new iOS version, there’s a new “Spatialize Stereo” option, which iOS can now simulate Spatial Audio for non-Dolby content, which will now detect head movement with AirPods to change the direction of the sound. About Lossless quality, no Bluetooth headphones will stream in Lossless because the technology doesn’t allow it.

AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, and Beats wireless headphones use Apple’s AAC Bluetooth Codec to ensure excellent audio quality. Bluetooth connections don’t support lossless audio. About AirPods Max, Apple confirms it doesn’t stream lossless and Hi-Res Lossless over Bluetooth but with the Lightning to 3.5 mm audio cable, this headphone will deliver an “exceptional audio quality, however, given the analog to digital conversion in the cable, the playback will not be completely lossless.”
How to enable, find, and play Spatial Audio on Apple Music?

Spatial Audio on Apple Music offers a really rich, immersive experience when listening with iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV 4K with HomePod or other Dolby Atmos supported speakers. Apple describes the feature as: “Get a multidimensional experience that goes beyond just listening to music and makes you feel like you’re inside of it.” Here’s everything you need to know about Spatial Audio, how to enable, find, and play.
What’s the deal with the AirPods Max?

The most expensive Apple headphone, the AirPods Max, doesn’t support Hi-Res Lossless even if wired. As an Apple spokesperson told 9to5Mac “AirPods Max currently does not support digital audio formats in wired mode.” To the Verge, Apple elaborated a little bit more about what happen when you try to listen to songs in a better quality on your wired AirPods Max:

Apple tells the Verge that when you play a 24-bit / 48 kHz Apple Music lossless track from an iPhone into the AirPods Max using both the cable and Lightning dongle, the audio is converted to analog and then re-digitized to 24-bit / 48 kHz. That re-digitization step is the reason that Apple can’t say you’re hearing pure lossless audio; it’s not an identical match to the source.” Although it’s not an identical match to the source, that’s the only way to listen to an improved version of tracks using an Apple headphone.
