Apple Music Classical App Announced
Apple has announced its new Apple Music Classical app that will be available at no additional cost for its Apple Music subscribers starting March 28th. Originally rumored to arrive last year, this app is specifically designed for classical music lovers and features the largest classical music library with over 5 million unique tracks and thousands of exclusive albums available at launch.
Specialized Search Engine
Apple claims that this app has a specialized search engine created specifically for classical music, which allows users to search by composer, work, conductor, or even catalog number. The company has made sure to provide its users with the highest audio quality available (up to 192 kHz/24-bit Hi-Res Lossless).
Intuitive Browsing Experience
In addition to its large music library and specialized search engine, Apple Music Classical includes “hundreds of Essentials playlists, insightful composer biographies, deep-dive guides for many key works, and intuitive browsing features.” These features make it easier for those just getting introduced to the genre to have a seamless experience.
Device And Subscription Requirements
The Apple Music Classical app requires an Apple Music subscription – Individual, Student, Family, or Apple One. Unfortunately, the app is not available to those with an Apple Music Voice Plan. It is also not available in certain countries including China, Japan, Korea, Russia, Taiwan, Turkey, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Finally, your device must be running iOS 15.4 and later and you must have an active internet connection.
Android Users Look Out
Apple did say that an Android version of the Apple Music Classical app will be “coming soon.” The Apple Music app is available from the App Store for iOS and the Google Play Store for Android.
