Apple Rumored To Be Developing High-Resolution Audio Formats

I’ll believe it when I see it. It’s 2015 and the best you can buy on most storefronts are still MP3s.

Apple has long been rumored to be looking to introduce higher-quality audio formats for iTunes Store downloads and perhaps also Apple Music streaming. A year and a half ago, music blogger Robert Hutton claimed Apple was working to roll out high-resolution audio for the iTunes Store, and Mac Otakara made similar claims about an HD Audio format and new hardware being planned for release alongside iOS 8 later that year.
