Apple Music will now pay up to 10% more to artists who create music in its immersive spatial audio format, as the company looks to push its surround sound format. 

According to Music Business Worldwide, from January “music available in Spatial Audio on Apple Music will receive a greater share of royalties from the platform.” The report says Apple sent an update to its label partners confirming that beginning with January 2024’s month-end payments “pro-rata shares for Spatial Available plays will be calculated using a factor of 1.1 while Non-Spatial Available plays will continue to use a factor of 1”.
