In 2021, Apple acquired the streaming platform Primephonic and now uses its work to launch the Apple Music Classical application. The new app will allow you to access 5 million classic recordings with their modern interpretations in high quality.
Users will also receive hundreds of selected playlists and thousands of exclusive albums. In addition, there will be information about the artists and more information about the compositions directly in the application.
Fans of classical music will be able to read editorial materials about composers and descriptions of their key works. Famous composers will be given individual digital portraits in high quality, which Apple separately ordered from artists, taking into account the color palettes and correspondence of the classical period. At launch, portraits will be available for Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Frédéric Chopin.
iPhone users with iOS 15.4 and newer versions will be able to check out the new application. It also requires an Internet connection to work, and recordings will be available in 192 kHz/24-bit Hi-Res Lossless.
Apple Music Classical currently only has a pre-order option, and the app itself has to be released on March 28. It will also require a subscription to Apple Music (Individual, Student, Family or Apple One).
