Any idea what format (is it lossless) and what Bit Rate does Apple Music stream its music ?
256 Kbps AAC and around 96Kbps AAC over cellular unless you enable 'High Quality on Cellular'.
is 256 KBPS AAC a lossless sound quality ? or is it compressed? And is AAC a file format?
Here is some good info on AAC. It is a lossy audio coding standard (not lossless).
Lol the fact that you have to ask shows that it's not something you should concern yourself with.
But I am still curious to find out.
everyone says that as a good argument Anyone know what the quality is with "high quality" setting on ?
It's usually a good argument. Like here, the OP asked if 256 kbps AAC was lossless but anyone that knows about lossless knows that lossless doesn't encode to a specific bitrate. The resulting bitrates are always higher than 256, and they're usually 800+ kbps. So I thought it was especially apt here haha.
To answer your question, it's 256 kbps on "high quality" as Julien said above.
