Then there’s a Spatial Audio event
Immediately after the keynote, Apple has teased a “special event” at 12 p.m. It will apparently focus on Apple’s Spatial Audio plans. On May 17, the tech giant said Apple Music is bringing “industry-leading sound quality” to subscribers with the addition of Spatial Audio with support for Dolby Atmos.
Spatial Audio with support for Dolby Atmos and Lossless Audio will be available to Apple Music subscribers at no additional cost. The company says Spatial Audio gives artists the opportunity to create immersive audio experiences for their fans with true multidimensional sound and clarity. Look for details today.
