Classical music enthusiasts will soon have a new app from Apple to enjoy their favorite music. The app, called ‘Apple Music Classical,’ will launch on March 28 and will offer a rich and curated experience-for both iOS and Android users. The app will be free for existing Apple Music subscribers.
Apple Music Classical will be available worldwide in countries where Apple Music is offered but with the exception of China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan with those regions to follow soon. And, as for device compatibility, Apple Music Classical will run on all iPhone models running iOS 15.4 or later.
According to Apple, Apple Music Classical is the “ultimate classical music experience,” offering hundreds of expertly curated playlists, thousands of exclusive albums, detailed biographies of composers, in-depth guides on significant works, user-friendly browsing tools, and a host of other features.
Apple also promises that the audio tracks will be streamed in the “highest audio quality available”—up to 192 kHz/24 bit Hi-Res Lossless and with Spatial Audio support. Apple will provide additional metadata to help users identify the work and the artist playing, as well as thousands of editorial notes with composer biographies, key works descriptions, and more
Apple Music Classical can be pre-ordered today on the App Store, and “once pre-order is complete, Apple Music Classical will automatically download at launch to enable immediate listening for users who have Auto Update turned on in their settings,” said Apple in the press release. The Android app for the same, however, is ‘coming soon’ and could be launched after the iOS release.
