The long-awaited Apple Music Classical app, which lets users with an Apple Music subscription listen to classical music, is now accessible via the App Store.
Primephonic, which Apple purchased in 2021 with the intention of releasing a classical music-focused app in 2022, gave birth to App. App promises to be better at handling the complicated metadata that is frequently associated with classical recordings. Also, the app will contain features like curated playlists and composer bios to assist users become more familiar with the genre.
More than 5 million tracks are available in the app’s catalog, according to Apple, and you can listen to music at up to 192 kHz/24 bit hi-res lossless. There are a few restrictions with the app, though. Classical is not available to App Voice Plan subscribers. Moreover, neither a native iPad version nor the ability to download songs to listen to offline won’t be available at launch.
Even if the absence of offline downloads disappoints me, I’m still eager to explore the app. App seems like it could be a fantastic method to learn more about a genre I feel like I should be more familiar with, even though I have to be online to utilize it. If I’m being completely honest, the first thing I’m going to do is look up arrangements of Maurice Ravel’s “Boléro.”
