Apple has officially announced its new classical-focused music app that will feature over 5 million tracks from “new releases to celebrated masterpieces.” While the launch of the free app is set for the end of March, here’s how to get Apple Music Classical to auto-download to your iPhone the moment it’s available.
Apple Music Classical is aiming to give what the company calls “the ultimate classical experience.”
Along with over 5 million tracks and thousands of exclusive albums, the app will feature “editorial notes including composer biographies, descriptions of key works, and more.”
Tracks will be available in up to 192 kHz/24 bit Hi-Res Lossless and thousands will be available in spatial audio.
Another handy feature is the ability to search by composer, work, conductor, or catalog number to quickly find the exact recording you’re looking for. And Apple touts “complete and accurate metadata to make sure you know exactly what and who you are playing.”
