As you know, Apple Music has been one of the most popular music streaming services that was launched by Apple Inc. in 2015. There are millions of songs available on the service, as well as playlists and music videos that can be accessed on demand. There are also curated playlists that users can listen to, as well as exclusive content from their favorite artists that they can listen to live. In addition to being available on a variety of devices, including iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV, the service requires a monthly subscription fee and is compatible with multiple devices. With Apple Music’s latest addition, which marks Apple’s entry into the classical music genre, there is certainly something interesting about the service’s latest addition.

Although it has many similarities with Apple’s existing service, such as high-quality streaming up to 192 kHz/24 bit lossless formats, exclusive content, comprehensive search options, as well as the signature Apple UI design, it is devoted to a specific genre of music, namely Johann Sebastian Bach and Johannes Brahms. In order to use the app, you will need to subscribe to Apple Music (apart from the Voice Plan, which is free) to be able to download it. The app will launch later this month and it will be free to download. The app will be available exclusively for iOS (15.4 or later) users. There will be a version for Android available in the not too distant future.
It is worth noting that Apple’s decision to launch Music Classical might be seen as a strategic response to Spotify’s recent announcement of a major redesign of its user interface. A new Home feed and “experience,” which were unveiled at the Stream On conference, offers a wide variety of previews, shortcuts, discovery-friendly feed items, along with recommendations, all displayed in a portrait orientation to make it easier for users to discover. The new user interface is expected to be released soon as well, although Spotify has not yet confirmed when this new user interface will be rolled out to Premium and Free users worldwide. Furthermore, the company recently released a new feature called the plus button, which replaces the old heart button that was originally present in the old Spotify version.
