Apple’s latest Apple Music beta app for Android may have disclosed the name of the company’s upcoming classical music app, implying that a release date is not far away.
Last year, Apple announced the acquisition of Primephonic, a classical music streaming service with search and browse options specifically suited for classical music.
Apple stated that the greatest aspects of Primephonic would be integrated into Apple Music, offering subscribers with a better classical music experience.
The business also stated that it would create a new Apple Music app specialized to classical music in 2022, merging Primephonic’s user experience and classical music specialties with Apple Music and technologies like as Lossless and Spatial Audio.
At the time, the name of the next dedicated app was not revealed. Lines of code unearthed by 9to5Google in the Apple Music beta for Android imply it could be called “Apple Classical,” with the code string pointing to the possibility to launch a compatible track directly in the optimized service.
Apple recently posted a job listing for a UX Designer to work on the company’s forthcoming standalone music app.
The candidate would be expected to “offer UX expertise and new views exclusively for Primephonic” in order to assist actualize a different experience for classical music that would encompass “visual, audial, and haptic” features, according to the job description.
While the job posting implied that the Primephonic brand will live on as part of Apple’s classical offering, it might also continue as a sub-section of the service under a different name, and “Apple Classical” would seem to suit the description.
Apple made another music-related financial move earlier this week when it acquired AI Music, a business that employs artificial intelligence to create personalized soundtracks and adaptive music.
