iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS 14.6 are out. I loaded them on my devices and there is no option for lossless/high res audio. I’m guessing it will be a .1 update.

I’m pretty excited about how this one works out. I’ve got a decent setup with local media on a cool music software called Roon which I can send to various endpoints, but it’s not cheap and it doesn’t support voice control. Simply asking for the music you want is a game changer IMO.

I think this will be great, not necessarily because people can hear the difference between lossy, high-quality mp4 files and lossless, but rather because at least some music will be remixed for these higher-quality files.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Apple had never announced that lossless audio on Apple Music would be released with the iOS 14.6 update in the first place. Rather, the official announcement had stated that the feature would be made available beginning June 2021.
then this from the Apple Music page.

How can I listen to lossless audio?


You can listen to lossless audio using the latest Apple Music app on an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV.7 Turn on lossless audio in Settings > Music > Audio Quality. You can choose between Lossless and Hi-Res Lossless for cellular or Wi-Fi connections. Note that Hi-Res Lossless requires external equipment such as a USB digital to analog converter.
Footnote 7
Available in iOS 14.6, iPadOS 14.6, macOS 11.4, or tvOS 14.6 or later.

This is going to sound fantastic through my 10 year old soundbar.

I have 35+ year old Bose 301 II’s for my fronts. They already made it sound like Cannonball Adderly was standing in the room with Apple’s Digital Masters.
