Apple Music Classical: How to Pre-Order and Download the App

Apple is finally gearing up to launch its dedicated classical music app named Apple Music Classical, which will offer a library of millions of tracks to the listeners. The app has now been listed on the App Store and is available to pre-order before its release later this month.

Apple Music Classical will have the world’s largest classical music catalog, which can be streamed with immersive spatial audio. Read on to find out all about how you can pre-order and download the app.

How to Pre-Order and Download Apple Music Classical

The app is set to be launched worldwide on March 28. You can pre-order the app by heading to Apple’s App Store. The company says that once the pre-order is complete, the app will be downloaded automatically on your phone once it officially launches. The Auto-update feature needs to be turned on in the settings to download the app automatically.

Alternatively, you can visit the App Store on March 28 and download the app manually. Currently, the app is only being made available on iOS, so it would not work on Mac, iPad, or Android. It will function on iPhones running iOS 15.4 or later.

As per reports, the app will be launched for different platforms in the upcoming months. You need to have an active Apple Music subscription to use the app. Users who have already subscribed would not need a separate subscription to Apple Music Classical.

Apple Music Classical will Feature 5 Million Songs

The platform will offer more than 5 million tracks for streaming, along with ‘hundreds of curated playlists, thousands of exclusive albums, insightful composer biographies, deep-dive guides for many key works (and) intuitive browsing features.’

“Apple Music Classical makes it quick and easy to find any recording in the world’s largest classical music catalog with fully optimized search, and listeners can enjoy the highest audio quality available and experience many classical in a whole new way with immersive spatial audio,” said the company in its press release.

Apple is also working with several prolific classical music artists and institutions around the world to offer ‘new, unique, and exclusive content and recordings at launch and beyond’ to the listeners. There will also be high-resolution digital portraits of composers, along with their biographies and key work descriptions.

However, certain limitations have been noted in the app. Apart from working only on iOS, the app will also need an active internet connection, as the tracks can not be downloaded for offline streaming. Apple Music Voice Plan is also not supported as of now. These features are expected to be incorporated in future updates.

The App is Based on Primephonic

Apple acquired the classical music streaming service Primephonic in August 2021 to launch its own classical music platform. Primephonic was eventually shut down in September 2021, and the tech giant set a target of the end of 2022 to launch its own app.

However, there was a delay of three months, and the app finally got listed on Apple’s App store on March 9. On the day, Apple Music subscribers were sent push notifications on their phones to make them aware of the upcoming app.
