  • Like Apple Music, Spotify now offers a three month premium trial

    I switched from Spotify, Simply because Spotify uses Ogg Vorbis and not Apple’s native AAC codec. When you use Bluetooth headphones, compression algorithms like MP3 or Spotify’s Ogg Vorbis will need to be decoded by the iPhone then encoded into another lossy algorithm (AAC) before being transmitted to your headphones.



    On the iPhone, I believe any audio file is decoded, then re-encoded to pass via bluetooth.
    Even Apple's AAC.
    Why would you decode and re-encode AAC to AAC when your Bluetooth headphones support AAC natively?
    If you’re using a pair of AAC-compatible headphones, you’re theoretically getting no loss in audio quality from your stored AAC files (the iTunes standard) or streaming from the Apple Music service. Here is reference

    Best use scenario for iPhone users you will want a pair of headphones compatible with the AAC codec, then you want an AAC or Apple Lossless (ALAC) music library as your source. This will provide the cleanest sound quality possible, free from compounded compression your music would otherwise suffer.  

    Even if you have aptX HD compatible headphones you are still getting compounded compression when you stream Spotify music. (does not apply to iPhone users ) 

    Apple’s simplicity and near-universal compatibility in codecs is its biggest strength.

    To me, even if you gave me a free premium Spotify account, I would still choose Apple Music, it's just a better choice!

  • How to transfer playlists from Spotify to Apple Music

    I use SongShift App works amazingly well. Much cheaper then Soundiiz and SongShift works with the free version of Spotify so you can transfer your playlist even if you are not paying for Spotify.

  • New 'Service' battery message in iOS pushes consumers toward official replacement

    I am on Apple side here. Third-party batteries blowing up iPhones and tarnishing brand. This right to repair is a two way stick. One side is good for users because third-party replacements parts are cheap, but unfortunate for Apple because once something goes wrong it’s Apple’s fault.
