AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) is a lossy audio format developed by Dolby and Sony Corporation, AT&T Bell Laboratories, and Fraunhofer IIS. During compression, AAC eliminates unnecessary data, making it smaller and easier to stream or download. Today, Apple devices such as iPhones and iPads are the biggest users of the AAC format.
