Although the Apple conference has ended for several days, but we can still find some surprises from some places. Do not know if you have found that Apple has been added for the Apple TV 4K, iPhone 8 series and iPhone X FLAC lossless audio format support.
The three new product pages have shown support for FLAC, and once iOS 11 is officially pushed, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will also increase support for FLAC.
But it is interesting that even if iOS 11 is installed, Apple's native music application still does not support FLAC files. This means that anyone who wants to listen to this music encoding has to resort to using a built-in file application or install a third-party application through the App Store to resolve it. VLC or Plex will be able to handle two examples of FLAC format, then we may wish to look at.
Although Apple has not announced, but because of the A10X chip, the latest iPad Pro may also be able to handle FLAC files. Apple did not update the product pages of these devices, and like the iPhone 6s or iPhone SE will be missed on the FLAC support, Apple seems to be more powerful devices to add support for the FLAC. If you really just hardware performance problems, we expect the iPad Pro series can also support FLAC as soon as possible.
For Apple's portable devices, it is worth noting that anyone who wants to use the full benefits of FLAC needs to make sure they're using Lightning's wired headphones. Unfortunately, the Bluetooth connection can not transmit enough data to allow users to listen to music that is encoded in lossless format.
FLAC Chinese can be interpreted as lossless audio compression encoding. FLAC is a well-known free audio compression encoding, which is characterized by lossless compression. Unlike other lossy compression encodings like MP3 and AAC, it does not destroy any of the original audio information, so you can restore the music disc sound quality. Since 2012 it has been supported by many software and hardware audio products such as CDs.
FLAC and MP3 is different from MP3, MP3 is lossy audio compression coding, but FLAC is lossless compression, that is, audio to FLAC encoding compression will not lose any information, the FLAC file to WAV file, and compressed before the WAV file content the same. This compression is similar to ZIP, but the FLAC compression ratio is greater than ZIP and RAR, because FLAC is designed specifically for PCM audio compression. And you can use the player to play FLAC compressed files directly, just as you normally play your MP3 files (in recent years, there are many car players and home audio equipment to support FLAC, in the FLAC website you can find these equipment manufacturers link).
FLAC is free and supports most operating systems, including Windows, based on Unix Like kernel (Linux, BSD, Solaris, IRIX, AIX, etc.), BeOS, OS / 2, Amiga. FLAC music download, the publisher is generally after the purchase of CD. Cda track directly captured into. Flac, to ensure that the original loss of quality CD.
All along, the users are looking forward to Apple as soon as possible to support this format, and now this "desire" finally realized, do not know the next FLAC will Apple users audio life what impact?
