Apple appears to have planned a dedicated event around Apple Music’s upcoming spatial audio feature later today, according to a video MacRumors says has been uploaded to Apple Music — and has since been removed. The event does not appear on the Worldwide Developers Conference schedule, according to the verege.
This is of course right after the supposed conclusion of Apple’s long-awaited keynote speech to kick off this year’s online WWDC, in which the company is expected to announce its annual updates for each of its operating systems.
Apple will present its usual State of the Union presentation, which focuses more on developers than the opening keynote and addresses various technical aspects of the company’s platforms.
And Apple announced spatial audio for Apple Music last month. Besides adding lossless files to the streaming service, spatial audio will work with AirPods, Apple’s built-in speakers, and third-party headphones, and should provide a more immersive mix of Dolby Atmos compared to In normal stereo sound.
Apple previously said the feature would launch in June, so mentioning a release date at the main WWDC conference wouldn’t be surprising, but it looks like the company wants to give it more time in the spotlight.
