News of the company’s new classical music app comes after they bought Primephonic, a classical music streaming service, in 2021.

Apple shared in 2021 that purchasing Primephonic gives subscribers an improved classical music experience.

"We love and have a deep respect for classical music, and Primephonic has become a fan favorite for classical enthusiasts," Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats, said in a statement in 2021. "Together, we’re bringing great new classical features to Apple Music, and in the near future, we’ll deliver a dedicated classical experience that will truly be the best in the world."
