Apple first announced the plan back in August of last year, after buying classical music streaming service Primephonic.

Apple today announced that it has acquired Primephonic, the renowned classical music streaming service, offering a unique listening experience with search and browsing functionality optimized for premium quality classical sound, hand-picked expert recommendations and extensive contextual details about repertoire and recordings.

With the addition of Primephonic, Apple Music subscribers will get a significantly enhanced classical music experience starting with Primephonic playlists and exclusive audio content. In the coming months, Apple Music Classical fans will get a dedicated experience with the best features of Primephonic, including better browsing and searching capabilities by composer and by repertoire, detailed views of classical music metadata, plus new features and benefits.

“We love and have a deep respect for classical music, and Primephonic has become a fan favorite for classical enthusiasts,” said Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats. “Together we’re bringing great new classical features to Apple Music, and in the near future we’ll deliver a dedicated classical experience that will truly be the best in the world” […]

Apple Music plans to launch a dedicated classical music app next year.

What Hifi – quotes MacRumors and our sister site 9to5Google – notes that this isn’t the first time we’ve seen code references to the upcoming classical music app.

Mentions of ‘Apple Classical’ were previously clocked in the iOS 15.5 beta, and talk of ‘Apple Classical’ was seen in a newer Android version of Apple Music.

While classical music can be found in the existing Apple Music app, the search functionality is extremely poor for a genre where people often want to play a particular performance by a preferred orchestra and conductor.
