I've read Apple plans to release higher quality content on Apple Music.

It's suggested this will happen May 18th.

It's possible or likely this will come with enhanced audio capabilities for apple products and software because currently getting 96Khz from iOS requires third party software and getting 96Khz from TVOS is currently impossible.

While the special announcement was cancelled, Apple music does feature lossless and sometimes ATMOS audio now.

I’ve been checking out some of the Atmos albums and some of them really pop, especially The Weeknd (I Feel It Coming sounds great on my AirPods Pro). Apparently the people in the iOS 15 beta are saying that head tracking for spatial audio does work on that. I guess the rest of us are a few months away on that.

I just bought a Dragonfly Red DAC to get the most out of my headphones with Apple Music

Even the HomePod sounds better with the upgrade. Very happy with what Apple is doing here.

Some albums I love like Same Trailer Different Park are available.

What I've heard of the Atmos music sounds great !

On Apple TV be sure to check that lossless is checked in music settings.

I was already paying for Apple Music for my kids but now I use it a lot more.

As I play more music from my phone, I see that more and more of it is now lossless.
If I notice any of it is now Atmos, Iíll make sure to check it out when Iím back home.

On disc, the only one I have that is Atmos is INXSís Kick and it is great!
If these new upmixes sound anything like that, Iím totally psyched!

Last night I listened to P!nk's The Truth about Love which has been upgraded to lossless. One track, Walk of Shame, had been edited of the swears. There aren't many. Weird that it was on that track, but swears on other songs weren't edited.

I'm gonna guess that there's gonna be a lot more albums that may get upgraded and be edited.
Does anyone know how I can get the originally albums that I bought?
Not that I'm a fan of swearing, I just want albums that are the Artists orginal intent.
