Rebranding Mastered for iTunes to Apple Digital Masters

August 7, 2019

Mastered for iTunes is now known as Apple Digital Masters. Apple Digital Masters gives Apple Music and iTunes providers a way to deliver high-resolution masters with the highest quality audio to our platforms.

The rules for mastering engineers, and the delivery specifications, guidelines, and submission process for providers will remain the same.. Here are some of the changes that you can expect:

• An Apple Digital Masters badge on the iTunes Store 
• Streamed or downloaded tracks created from Apple Digital Masters will be available across the Apple ecosystem.
• The Editorial team will feature Apple Digital content on both Apple Music and the iTunes Store.

For more information, visit the Apple Digital Masters section in iTunes Video and Audio Asset Guide 5.3 and use Apple Digital Masters as an additional resource.

To access a list of all of our Apple approved mastering studios, visit Apple Digital Masters Providers List on iTunes Connect Resources and Help.
