Iphone Now Supports MQA and gets Tidal Masters

Following the recent Tidal and MQA announcement for Android, Master quality tracks are now available via iPhones.

The eagerly awaited update to Tidal's iOS app follows the Android news that was announced at CES in January.

Mike Jbara, MQA CEO, told StereoNET:

From our ongoing work with engineers and artists, we know the importance creators place on delivering the original sound they created all the way to the music fan. Through our global partnership with TIDAL, this becomes a reality wherever you're enjoying your music.

Lior Tibon, Tidal COO, added:

Bringing music to life, just as the artist intended, is a core value of the Tidal platform and we couldn't be more excited to finally bring master quality music to both major mobile operating systems.

MQA has partnerships with all three major record labels, as well as with Merlin, representing the independent label community, and the Tidal Masters catalogue continues to grow, covering new releases and catalogue recordings.
