After that, it sounds like the content is pouring in on you from all sides. However, there is not yet as much compatible music, film and series content as one might wish.
At the beginning, the whole thing only dominated the Apple TV app, recently also Apple Music, With iOS and iPadOS 15 Spatial Audio is also to be improved in such a way that other content can also be enjoyed automatically with 3D sound.
