Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos empowers artists to create more immersive listening experiences, where sound comes from all around the listener. By default, Apple Music automatically plays Dolby Atmos tracks on all AirPods and Beats headphones with an H1 or W1 chip. Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos will also play on the built-in speakers in the latest versions of iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
Apple Music is adding new Dolby Atmos tracks constantly and curates a special set of Dolby Atmos playlists to help listeners find the music they love. Apple Music is working regularly with artists and labels to add new releases and the best catalog tracks, as more artists begin to create music specifically for the Spatial Audio experience. Together, Apple Music and Dolby are making it easy for musicians, producers, and mix engineers to create songs in Dolby Atmos. These features are available for Apple Music subscribers on Individual, Family and Student plans at no additional cost.
