The Apple Insider website has discovered a handy new features which was rolled out by Apple in its last iTunes 10.6 update, which rolled out last week. The new features tables you to down-convert higher bitrate songs to a low-end 128kbps. Allowing you to save space on your mobile devices when away from your main music library.
In previous versions of iTunes Apple only allowed 128kbps as the option to down-convert. But in the latest iTunes 10.6 release Apple has now enabled 192kbps or 256kbps quality levels. Providing you with more scope and higher quality when required if you have the available space.
iTunes music purchased directly from Apple are encoded at 256kbps, and CD’s burnt to your mac or PC iTunes software has a bitrate of 320kbps. So the new options will be handy if you have smaller iOS devices or you just like to pack in as much music as you can.
