Apple Music Classical, the company’s music app that focuses solely on classical music, has reached version 1.1, and with it comes an important new feature: the app is now available for iPad.
The iPad version of Apple Music Classical doesn’t have any outstanding new features, but the fact that you can now try out the app on the larger iPad display makes it a worthwhile download for iPad owners.
Apple Music Classical comes with composer biographies as well as detailed descriptions of works.
Launched in March 2023 as a free download for Apple Music subscribers, Apple Music Classical is very similar to Apple Music. There is no additional content, but the focus is entirely on classical music, with curated playlists, composer biographies, detailed descriptions of classical works, and a search optimized for classical music.
Apple Music Classical is now available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but not for Mac
Apple says version 1.1 of the app also brings stability and performance improvements.
