Apple is gearing up to launch a standalone classical music app that will be available alongside its flagship “Apple Music” app.
Apple said there will be a “dedicated classical music app” coming this year, with the app combining Primephonic’s classic user interface with “more added features”, a media source reports. Music lovers will likely get the standalone classical music app in the upcoming iOS 16 update due before the end of the year. Apple Classical has already appeared in the backend code used by the tech company.
Apple Music quickly gained popularity after its launch, hitting the 10 million subscriber milestone in just six months. The music service has over 100 million subscribers worldwide.
Tech giant Apple recently announced that it now has more than 860 million paid subscribers across all of its services, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple News, iCloud, and more. “Customers continue to enthusiastically engage with our content across news, fitness, music, games, and more,” the company said. “We also achieved revenue records for the June quarter in every major service category, including all-time revenue records for music,” he added.
