A report by 9to5Mac claims that Apple Pull is working on introducing a hifi scheme for Apple Pull Music that could be introduced to subscribers with the release of iOS 14.6. The release says it has added a new code to the Apple Play Music app in the first build of iOS 14.6, specifically mentioning “Dolby Atoms,” “Dolby Audio Dio” and “Lossless.” So far, Apple Play has not endorsed Dolby, but only its internal hifi audio Dio codec ALK.
HiFi files have less audio dio compression and are therefore capable of better sound quality output. Spotify recently announced that it is also venturing into high quality audio streaming with Spotify HiFi. It is speculated that Spotify will cost more for the Spotify HiFi plan than its existing subscriptions.
A music site, Hits Daily Double, quoted sources as saying that Apple will introduce Hifai streaming support for Apple Music with third-generation AirPods at WWDC 2021, scheduled for June. But this contradicts analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s claim that new airpods are expected to launch in Q3 2021.
The report also claims that Apple Pull can provide hifi audio dio streaming support on Apple Pull Music without increasing its subscription price. Starting from Rs 99.99 per month for individual level in India and Rs.
