Apple Takes Over Classical Music Streaming Service Primephonic

The American company is taking over the streaming service Primephonic, which is specifically designed for classical music; thus, it will no longer be available on its own and will become part of Apple Music.

The Primephonic streaming service previously stood out for its search and browse functionalites specifically optimized for classical music, recommendations from experts, and information about repertoire and recordings.

By integrating Primephonic into Apple Music, Apple aims to provide an enhanced classical music experience for its subscribers, including Primephonic playlists and exclusive audio content. More Primephonic features are also said to follow in the coming months, including better browsing and search functions, detailed viewing of classical music metadata and more.

With the acquisition, Primephonic went offline in its current form, and is no longer available to new subscribers. Existing Primephonic subscribers will be allowed to use Apple Music for free for six months in exchange. Next year, Apple Music plans to release its own classical music app, which will combine Primephonic's user interface with additional features. This is supposed to make classical music available in both lossless and high-resolution audio, as well as certain albums in Apple Music's 3D audio format.
