launched the Music Classical app on the App Store in March as an iPhone-only app. Later on, the company added the app to the Google Play Store for Android devices in May. Now, the Cupertino-based tech giant has rolled out another update for the Music Classical app. The latest update of the app adds support for iPads.
Apple has already started rolling out the latest version (version 1.1) of the Music Classical app in the App Store.

Apple Music Classical: Availability
With the latest update, Apple Music Classical is now avail on , iPad and Android platforms. The Classical app will be available for free for users who have a normal Apple Music subscription.
How Apple Music Classical is different from Apple Music
Users can find all classical music songs in the library of the standard Apple Music app. Meanwhile, the dedicated Apple Music Classical app features design changes that are optimised for classical musical enthusiasts.
The Classical app also includes richer metadata for recordings. This includes detailed information about composers and conductors, fine-grained search and specially curated playlists as well as recommendations.
Customers can listen with high-quality streaming, up to 192 kHz Hi-Ress Lossless on the Apple Music Classical app. However, the Classical app also has a disadvantage. This app requires an always-on internet connection and doesn’t allow users to download songs to play offline.
Earlier, Apple claimed that it was working closely with some of the most prolific classical music artists and institutions in the world. This will help the company to offer Apple Music Classical listeners unique and exclusive content.
