Apple Music Spatial Audio doesn’t work with the built-in speakers in iPhone XR, iPad mini, and iPad

With the arrival of Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos in Apple Music earlier this year, the expectation was that the feature would work with a variety of different Apple-branded devices right out of the box. And that's certainly the case (especially with Lossless audio quality). But it turns out Apple has had to revise the list of supported devices that support the upgraded listening experience from the built-in speakers.

How to listen to Apple Music Lossless Audio

Apple Music saw plenty of new features added to it in the last month. If you're a an Apple Music subscriber, you can now listen to music that supports Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos, and Lossless Audio. Apple has promised that almost all of its music collection will eventually be available in Lossless format. The support for this new codec will enable audio tracks to sound exactly like how they were created in the studio.

Would you buy a new iPod?

Sometimes, it can be easy to forget that in 2021, there is an iPod touch still available to buy. Apple actually launched the thing in early 2019, so it's not even that old! But with so many newer devices out there in the wild, especially the iPhone, no one could blame anyone for forgetting about the iPod.

How to listen to Dolby Atmos music on Apple devices

Last month, Apple rolled out Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos for Apple Music, and it works on most Apple devices. Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos offers a surround-sound audio experience when listening to music on Apple Music. The feature will work on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV 4K. You can also play Spatial Audio on the HomePod, but via the Apple TV 4K. As of now, over 20 million tracks support Spatial Audio, and more will be added by the end of this year.

Want better looking pop-ups in the Apple Music app? Try MusicBanners

Apple Music is by far one of the most popular ways to stream music on the iOS & iPadOS platforms. This statement remains true even regarding users of jailbroken handsets.

Jailbreakers who want to upgrade their user experience in the Apple Music app are in luck this Tuesday morning thanks to a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed MusicBanners by iOS developer level3tjg, as it effectively replaces the Apple Music app’s ugly center-screen HUD pop-ups with something nicer.

Give your iPhone’s Now Playing interface an eye-popping makeover with ChromaFlow

Apple is regarded as one of the most influential players in the music industry — not only because of what iTunes once was, but also because of the creation of Apple Music and its seamless integration with the company’s expansive mobile device and desktop computer offerings.

Given just how much Apple seems to have invested in the music industry, it’s somewhat curious as to why the Now Playing interface on iPhones and iPads hasn’t changed much over the years. In fact, many are now calling on Apple to offer some sort of redesign after a seemingly stagnant UI that changes so little over time.
