What you need to know
- Some users are seeing Spatial Audio and lossless audio pop up in the Apple Music app.
- It is currently unknown when exactly the feature will roll out to all users.
- Apple said that both will launch in June.
As reported by AppleInsider, both features are starting to pop up for some seemingly random users in the Apple Music app. Two users noticed that Spatial Audio and Lossless Audio showed up in the app despite the lack of an official release from Apple. Now, it's not clear exactly what version of iOS either of these users are using and whether it's a public release of iOS or a public or developer beta.
Regardless, it is interesting to see the features briefly make an appearance before quickly disappearing.

Now it's back at streaming AACSo what's up with Apple Music? For a moment I got a popup saying I need to redownload an album to get Dolby Atmos. After doing so the music type went to HLS media.

The features will bring higher quality versions of songs as well as a new dimensional experience with tracks that support Spatial Audio much like some content on Apple TV+.
