What format does iTunes music use?
iTunes offers its users the simplest way to add and organize music in their music library in their digital devices. Currently, the iTunes version 11 can read, write and convert various digital formats which include MP3, AAC, WAV, AIFF, MPEG-4 and Apple Lossless or .m4a. iTunes can also read all the audio files that a QuickTime player can read as well as a number of other formats, such as read and write protected AAC files from Audible.com audio books and iTunes Store.
iTunes offers limited support to some files formats such as FLAC and Vorbis which are enclosed in an Ogg container (iTunes does not support files that have Ogg container format) or files with Xiph QuickTime Components such as Speex codecs. iTunes cannot read these QuickTime components because both the album art and tag editing in the iTunes devices is done by the iTunes company and not by the QuickTime company. The most recent version of iTunes both for Mac and Windows has a feature that allows user to import audio CDs to the iTunes devices using the normal or default iTunes file format of AAC at a bit rate of 256 kbit/s. Users do not necessary have to use this bit rate; this iTunes device allows users to select the transfer bit rate speed raging from 16 kbit/s to 320 kbit/s in either MP3 or AAC formats. Users can also use a variable bit rate to import audio CDs into iTunes devices using the MP3 or AAC formats.
