Previously, Apple enabled lossless hi-res audio support for Apple Music. However, the HomePod and HomePod mini speakers did not support this high-quality sound initially, but the notes on the Apple website indicated that support could be included in the future.
The new HomePod 15 beta update unlocks Lossless Audio.
How to enable Lossless Audio on HomePod:
- Go to the Home app;
- Then click “Home” in the upper left corner;
- Select “Home Setup”;
- Then click on the user profile;
- Scroll down to “Media” and select the “Apple Music” tab, switching to “Lossless Audio”.
Make sure that the songs natively support sound without quality loss: there should be a corresponding icon in Apple Music.
Note! We do not recommend placing betas on your devices. Especially do not rush to update the HomePod, as users recently had complaints about the column overheating after the update, and even its complete failure.
