Apple is releasing new classical music streaming app

Apple launches new music streaming service focused on classical music. The new Apple Music Classical app offers Apple Music subscribers over 5 million classical music tracks, including new releases in high-quality audio and provides access to hundreds of curated playlists. According to Apple, there are thousands of exclusive albums and other features like songwriter biographies and in-depth reviews of important works.

Although the app was announced, it is currently only available for pre-order on the App Store. The release date is March 28th at the end of this month. Also, the app will only support iOS devices running iOS 15.4 or later at the time of release.

The company’s decision to target classical music listeners with a standalone app is a differentiator for its Apple Music subscription service, but rival Spotify announced this week that it will be adding more tech features like AI and video.

Apple Music Classical provides a simple interface for interacting with classical works. Users can search by composer, work, director, or even catalog number to find recordings.

The app also allows users to dive into recordings and read editorial notes and descriptions of key works about the composer. Famous composers will have exclusive high-definition digital portraits commissioned by Apple from the artist.

The service will continue to be updated with new music over time. Apple has been working with classical music artists and music institutions to offer exclusive content and recordings at launch, and says it will continue to do so in the future.
