Apple will be holding its WWDC Kickoff Keynote on Monday, June 7 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, but it turns out that it won’t be the only Apple event that morning. Apple Music has now announced a special event, apparently focused on Spatial Audio, for June 7 at 12:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. ET.
The event was ad in a video posted to Apple Music over the weekend, which was first spotted by Kenny on Twitter. The video simply teases “tune in at 12:00 PM PT on June 7 to watch this special event.” This event is not on the WWDC schedule and was not previously announced by Apple.
Apple announced support for Spatial Audio and lossless playback for Apple Music last month, saying it would be released in June. Now it looks like we’ll know more about this launch tomorrow.
Apple said that at launch, subscribers will be able to enjoy thousands of Spatial Audio songs written in Dolby Atmos by some of the world’s greatest artists and music in all genres, including hip-hop, country, Latin. , pop and classic. Apple promises to work with artists and labels to add new releases and catalog tracks, as more artists begin to create music specifically for the Spatial Audio experience.
The Spatial Audio feature will be supported on all AirPods and Beats headphones with an H1 or W1 chip, as well as built-in speakers in the latest versions of iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Meanwhile, Apple has promised that the entire Apple Music catalog of over 75 million songs will be available in a lossless version. Apple Music’s Lossless level starts at CD quality, which is 16-bit at 44.1kHz, and goes up to 24-bit at 48kHz and is playable natively on Apple devices. Apple Music will also offer Hi-Resolution Lossless up to 24-bit at 192kHz, which requires an external DAC.
Apple Music Lossless and Spatial Audio won’t cost Apple Music subscribers a lot.
