Last year, in March, Apple announced the Apple Music Classical app for iPhones. The iPad version of the app arrived later in 2023, in November. The app lets you listen to recordings with up to 192 kHz / 24-bit lossless audio. It was released as part of Apple’s 2021 acquisition of Primephonic, a streaming service that offers classical music.

As of now, the Cupertino-based tech firm Apple has debuted the Apple Music Classical in six more markets. Reportedly, the company announced the service in six markets in Asia. These new markets comprise Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and China. Interestingly, the service is available for pre-order. It means that at some point later in 2024, the service will actually be available to users.

According to the details, users of Apple Music can freely access the service. One thing to notice here is that Apple Music Classical is a standalone app that has around 5 million classical tracks. Notably, the tracks are available in Hi-Res lossless audio. Experienced classical music specialists curate Apple Music Classical with the goal of assisting new and seasoned listeners in discovering outstanding pieces.

In addition to this, users can access exclusive content on the Apple Music Classical app. The interface of the app features details like orchestra, conductor, contributing artists, work name, and even the year of recording. For some pieces, there are also exclusive artworks and 700 carefully curated playlists created by Apple Music’s editors. As compared to the regular Apple Music app, the Browse tab of Apple Music Classical is differently designed.
