Apple still working on standalone classical music app, according to hidden code changes Discovered by @iSWUpdates Included in today’s iOS 16.3 release candidate. The software update is in the final stages of beta testing and will be released to the public next week, but it’s unclear if or when the app will launch.
For example, Apple changed the line of text that appears in the stock iPhone Music app from “Shortcut to Apple Classical” to “Open in Apple Music Classical.” This suggests that Apple has renamed the app, at least temporarily. Another line of code says, “Explore this artist in an app designed for classical music.”
In August 2021, Apple announced plans to acquire classical music service Primephonic and release a dedicated classical music app in 2022, but the app has yet to be released and Apple has remained silent about its plans. I’m here. Primephonic will be shutting down in September 2021, and subscribers will receive his six-month free Apple Music subscription.
“Apple Music will release a dedicated classical music app next year that combines the Primephonic classic user interface that fans have come to love with more additional features,” said Apple’s 2021 press release. I’m here. Apple promised to include the best features of Primephonic. “Better browsing and searching capabilities by composer and by repertoire” and “detailed viewing of classical music metadata”.
Hidden references to classical music apps were discovered last year in the Apple Music app beta for Android and iOS 15.5 beta. More references to the app were found last year in an XML file on Apple’s servers.
