Upcoming ‘Apple Classical’ music app looks imminent

The upcoming “Apple Classical” app based on Apple’s Primephonic acquisition could soon launch on Mac, iPhone, and iPad in macOS 12.4, iOS 15.5, and iPadOS 15.5.

Work on a classical music experience that should be an integral part of the stock Music app seems to be wrapping up. Yesterday, Apple seeded the first developer betas of iOS 15.5 and other OS updates. MacRumors has now discovered multiple code strings which strongly suggest that a new classical music app from Apple could be nearing launch.

According to the publication, the Music app’s code includes previously missing strings such as “Open in Apple Classical” and “Open this in the new app designed for classical music.” References to “Apple Classical” were discovered earlier in the code of the official Apple Music app for Android. It’s the biggest clue yet that the tentatively named “Apple Classical” music app could be launching soon.

MacDailyNews Note: macOS 12.4, iOS 15.5, and iPadOS 15.5 will most likely be released to the public in May.

  1. Looking forward to it. This would be a good pairing with a new AirPods Pro that really elevates the music listening quality. Classical is a genre that often gives a great listening experience with all the frequencies so precisely represented when paired with high quality audio playback. I’m unfortunately not one that has the space for an excellent sound system. And I’m not a fan of over the ear (the next best to a high quality sound system). Wireless ear buds are a step down from these options but hopefully the upcoming AirPods Pro closes some of that gap. Looking forward to trying the classical music app upcoming from Apple on APP2.
