One of the novelties that arrived yesterday with iOS 15.1 is the possibility of enjoying Apple Music content in Spatial Audio and in Lossless format on our HomePods. Formats that represent a profound change in experience and quality. Some formats that, however, we must activate manually to be able to enjoy them.
One fit for all of our HomePods
The Spatial Audio, in Dolby Atmos format, as well as the lossless Apple Lossless format, arrived on Apple Music several weeks ago. Some formats that allow us to enjoy the content of the Apple Music catalog in a very more immersive and at the highest possible quality.
With iOS 15.1 and the sister update for the HomePod operating system, we can enjoy these two formats directly on our speakers. Before activating this option it is necessary that we have updated our iPhone to iOS 15.1. Then we must update our HomePod. Let’s remember that we can do it in the app Home by pressing and holding on the HomePod icon, then touching the little Settings wheel at the bottom right of the screen and finally touching To update.
Well, with all devices updated We can now activate the Lossless format and the Spatial Audio on our HomePods. The steps to follow are those:
- We open the app Home on our iPhone or iPad.
- We touch the button of the house in the upper left.
- We came in House settings.
- Low Persons, we touch the user who is marked as owner, surely ourselves.
- We came in Apple Music.
- We activate Lossless audio and Dolby Atmos.
Ready. With these steps we can now play Lossless content and in Spatial Audio format directly on all of our HomePods. Let us remember, however, that for now the catalog of songs in Spatial Audio is reduced and that it will grow progressively.
If we have had the opportunity to test both lossless sound and spatial audio on other devices, we will know first-hand the change it represents in the listening experience. A change that we can now enjoy in all of our speakers. Sounds good right?
