How to Increase Quality in the iPhone Spotify App

Spotify has become one of the most popular streaming media apps available, due largely to its giant catalog of music. The app is so good that it is the primary means of music consumption for a large percentage of its users, and you may find that you create and follow so many playlists that you need to remove some of them.

You may have read about people adjusting the quality of music that they stream through Spotify, or you may be looking for a way to make it sound better. The iPhone Spotify app offers a setting that allows you to choose from three different levels of quality. The default setting is called Normal, and it is the lowest streaming quality in the app. You can also select from a High and Extreme option. So if you would like to listen to a higher quality of music when streaming through Spotify, then the steps below will show you how.
