Wait for more content to support.

But if you haven’t tried spatial audio yet, what is the function? You may have been wondering for a long time. So let’s review the features and use of spatial audio together, which is not an exaggeration to say that the movie experience will change.

What is spatial audio in the first place?

Spatial audio is like being in a movie theaterImmersive experienceWith the function that plays AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, you can experience sound from the front and back, left and right, and even from above without a speaker for a large-scale home theater.

Spatial audio setup is easy, but keep in mind that even if you have an AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, you can’t use this feature unless your iPhone or iPad supports it.

The following iPhone and iPad models support spatial audio.

・ IPhone 7 or later

・ Sixth generation iPad onwards

・ IPad mini 5th generation onwards

I’m sure everyone wants to enjoy movies and dramas on the big screen, so I’d be glad if Apple TV also supports spatial audio in the next update … (not currently supported).

Only a small part of the content supports spatial audio

Once you’ve turned on spatial audio, you’ll need to search for compatible content (although you can only test it on Apple TV + movies and dramas and iTunes in Japan the other day).Netflix can support spatial audioThere was a story …).

Before watching a movie rented or purchased from iTunes using spatial audio, check the summary section under the title. Depending on the movie, in addition to the supported image quality (4K and Dolby Vison), the audio environment is also specified as Dolby Atmos, 5.1ch, 7.1ch, so you can enjoy the movie to the fullest if you check in advance. ..

Spatial audio for a new music experience developed by Apple. In the future, I would be happy if you could support not only movies and dramas, but also live pictures and games!
