Apple has introduced a new music streaming service dedicated specifically to classical music. It is now available for pre-order on the App Store and will officially arrive for everyone on March 28. A version of the app for Android is set to be released later.
The new app is called Apple Classical Music, and it carries much of the same design as the main Apple Music app. The service will offer access to more than 5 million tracks of classical music, from new releases to celebrated masterpieces.
Moreover, Apple Music Classical will feature hundreds of curated playlists, thousands of exclusive albums, as well as editorial notes, including insightful composer biographies, deep-dive guides for key works, and more.
The app offers a more powerful search that allows users to search by composer, work, conductor, and even catalog number to let them find specific recordings instantly.
Tracks can be streamed in high-quality audio of up to 192 kHz/24-bit Hi-Res Lossless, and thousands of recordings will be available in immersive spatial audio.
Apple Music Classical will be shipped as part of the standard Apple Music subscription, including the Individual, Student, Family, and Apple One plans, at no additional cost. However, it will not be available with the Apple Music Voice Plan.
