AIFF: a high-quality audio file
This format first emerged in the late 1980s as a development of Apples specialists. It is a standardized format for storing audio data. AIFF files are not compressed, which is why they are larger than mp3. The audio file contains samples and loop information. It is most often used by qualified musicians who need high-quality sound. One minute of audio in the AIFF format requires 10 megabytes of disk space. The encoding process excludes data loss, which makes this format similar to WAV.
M4A, which is short for MPEG-4
Developed by Apple in 2004, M4A is an audio file created in a multimedia format. It is used to store compressed video and audio files. Worth noting, M4A files can also store images. Using different codecs, you can compress the file with or without losses. M4A is an improved version of the mp3 format. You can convert it to other formats without any loss of quality and size. Playable on devices powered by any Apple platform.
