Apple Music Classical app references appear ahead of planned 2022 launch
Apple announced last year that it had acquired Primephonic, a classical music streaming service as part of a plan to release a “new classical music experience from Apple,” with the iPhone maker saying it would launch a dedicated classical music app during 2022 to offer Apple Music subscribers “a significantly improved classical music experience.”
As we enter fall, Apple appears to be readying Apple Music Classical for launch, with mentions of Apple Classical appearing in Apple’s backend code, as reported by MacRumors.
At the time when the acquisition was announced, Apple said with the addition of Primephonic, Apple Music subscribers will get a significantly improved classical music experience beginning with Primephonic playlists and exclusive audio content.”
“In the coming months, Apple Music Classical fans will get a dedicated experience with the best features of Primephonic, including better browsing and search capabilities by composer and by repertoire, detailed displays of classical music metadata, plus new features and benefits.”
Apple has remained quiet since the original announcement and is yet to share any further details about the new service.
