How to play Hi-Res music on iPhone

Once you know how to play Hi-Res music on iPhone, you can listen to the best quality audio on your smartphone — but it’s not a straightforward process. The iPhone has a lot to offer music fans, especially when paired with AirPods or AirPods Pro, but it lacks native support for Hi-Res Audio. Even the latest iPhone 12 can’t play Hi-Res music out of the box.

That’s unfortunate, especially given that many Android phones offer this feature, but iPhone owners aren’t entirely out of luck. You’ll need to buy some additional hardware, including the right kind of headphones, but before long you’ll be listening to lossless tunes in all their glory. Here’s how to play Hi-Res music on iPhone.
