Apple Music Classical will feature hundreds of curated playlists, thousands of exclusive albums, insightful composer biographies, deep-dive guides for many key works, intuitive browsing features and much more.
Apple Music has announced the launch of Apple Music Classical; a brand new standalone app designed specifically for classical music.
The new app works just like the main Apple Music app, making it quick and easy to find any recording in the world’s largest classical music catalogue with fully optimised search.
Alongside music, the app will also feature curated playlists, thousands of exclusive albums, insightful composer biographies, deep-dive guides for many key works, intuitive browsing features and much more.

How do I get it?
The app will launch on March 28 but is available to pre-order now. Apple Music subscribers will be able to download and enjoy the Apple Music Classical app as part of their existing subscription at no additional cost. Once pre-order is complete, Apple Music Classical will automatically download at launch to enable immediate listening for users who have Auto Update turned on in their settings.
Initially, the app will only be available on iPhone models running iOS 15.4 or later. It will be available on Android at a later date. It will be available worldwide where Apple Music is offered with the exception of China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan with those regions to follow.
