Apple Music Hi-Fi announcement teased ahead of the official launch
Apple is gearing up to launch the new Apple Music Hi-Fi very soon. The company has dropped a new teaser hinting at the imminent launch.
The six-second teaser has the logo spinning back and forth, suggesting the surround sound nature of the Spatial Audio feature. The teaser does not reveal the exact launch date. The Browse tab confirms that the announcement is “coming soon”. References to Apple Music’s Hi-Fi service were found in the iOS 14.6 code and Apple’s Music app for Android beta.
HiFi, in general, offers superior sound clarity and depth. Spotify, Tidal, and Amazon Music offer a special HiFi tier for their subscribers. However, the lossless audio feature is not officially available in India. The feature could make it to India. A previous report stated that it will cost the same as the current standard plan at $9.99. In India, the standard plan is priced at Rs 99 per month in India.
Apple is also rumoured to launch the AirPods 3 alongside. The new generation earbuds are said to share the AirPods Pro design language with some minor differences. Leaked images show that the next-gen model will have a smaller stem compared to the current-gen AirPods. Previous reports also suggest that it will not come with “Pro” features like Active Noise Cancellation.
Both new products are expected to launch in the coming weeks.
