Apple has updated its support page showing: Devices that support spatial audio playback It appears that he changed his plans on Apple Music, or the information he posted at the time was incorrect. We will never know.

Initially, this support page was for older devices such as iPhone XR and iPad Air 3 were compatible. I use it with Apple Music spatial audio, but sadly it doesn’t seem to be the case after updating this support page.

The first version of the Apple Music Spatial Audio support page can find the following devices:

the built-in speaker iPhone XR or later (except iPhone SE), 12,9-inch iPad Pro (first generation and above), 11-inch iPad Pro, iPad (first generation and above), ipad air (first generation and above) or ipad mini (first generation).

After updating the support page, fewer devices that don’t go out. iPhone XR and 3rd Generation iPad Air among other.

built-in speaker iPhone XS or later (except iPhone SE), 12,9-inch iPad Pro (3 generations or more), 11-inch iPad Pro O ipad air (4th generation).

after this update Does not support spatial audio Apple Music is:

  • iPhone XR
  • iPad mini 5
  • ipad 6
  • iPad 7
  • iPad 8
  • 3rd Generation iPad Air

Initially, this same support page pointed out: iPhone 7 also supports spatial audio, shortly after it was modified to include the iPhone XR and later as barriers to entry.

For now, the Apple Music website Suppress this changeBut it’s only a matter of days before Apple updates the web with these changes.
