The Apple Music bitrate depends on your internet connection, says Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue on Twitter. The Apple Executive also mentioned that a new iOS 9 beta with support for Apple Music will be out “early next week.”

Last month, Slashgear reported that Apple Music will use 256kbps AAC files, the same file format used when purchasing music through the iTunes Store. In comparison, Beats Music and Spotify use 320kbps MP3 and 320kbps ogg files, respectively.
Unfortunately, unlike remotely every other music streaming service available, Apple Music does not have options to tweak music streaming quality. Presumably, Apple Music streams lower quality over cellular.
Apple has yet to release to specify Apple Music bitrates. Do you think Apple will allow users to choose streaming quality?
