Currently, we realized that Apple’s ultra-quality $550 AirPods Max headphones are not completely ready for the new lossless audio catalog coming to Apple New music upcoming month — and they’re not alone. Apple confirms to The Verge that the HomePod and HomePod mini will not support lossless audio, possibly. (MacRumors verified the identical matter with sources previously this afternoon.)
The great news is that the HomePod and HomePod mini will indeed assist the company’s new spacial audio activities, which are intended to offer additional immersive audio than a regular stereo or digital surround blend — we were relatively intrigued trying spacial audio on the AirPods Professional, and it’s also coming to Apple Tunes subsequent thirty day period in a even bigger way.
And, Apple suggests, it’s not like any of these devices will fall short to participate in again lossless tracks wholly. They merely will not be actively playing them at lossless quality.
Even now, it appears like just one far more motive that Apple need to genuinely strongly think about acquiring a fire sale for the authentic HomePod, which is in some way still accessible for a increasingly really hard-to-justify $300 months right after officially becoming discontinued.
