Apple Lossless, also known as Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC), or Apple Lossless Encoder (ALE), is an audio codec developed by Apple Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music. Apple Lossless data is stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension .m4a. This extension is also used by Apple for lossy AAC audio data in an MP4 container (same container, different audio encoding). However, Apple Lossless is not a variant of AAC (which is a lossy format), but rather a distinct lossless format that uses linear prediction similar to other lossless codecs.

FLAC is a codec which allows digital audio to be losslessly compressed such that file size is reduced without any information being lost. FLAC is an open format with royalty-free licensing and a reference implementation which is free software. However, Apple devices like iPhone/iPad/iPod and iTunes software can’t support the FLAC file; we should get help from some other audio converting software to convert FLAC to iPod/iPod touch/iPhone/iPad and iTunes compatible audio formats like Apple lossless audio with the extension of .m4a and M4A, MP3, AAC, and WAV audio file.
