Does Apple Support AV1?

Strangely, as a part of Alliance for Open Media which is responsible for the AV1 codec, Apple does not support AV1 currently. It may be that Apple still holds patents on HEVC and doesn't want to give up on that. But for users who are expecting to experience the new AV1 decoding, the good news is that Apple may soon include AV1 codec support in its next-gen products. People have found in Apple’s AVFoundation's Core Media framework libraries a new global variable listed as "kCMVideoCodecType_AV1". This is a good sign that Apple is working on AV1 now. But nothing is certain as Apple is very secretive about its future products.

As of now, you still need to use third-party software to decode AV1 files for playing on your Apple device. If you have collected some AV1 videos, you can also convert the AV1 files to formats supported by your Apple device. In the next part, you can learn the simple steps to convert AV1 to play on Apple without error.
