MacRumors is now suggesting the classical app is on the way
The latest tidbit from MacRumors:
"On March 2, Apple sent out invites for its "Peek Performance" spring event, which is set to take place on March 8. The company is expected to unveil the third-generation iPhone SE, the fifth-generation iPad Air, a redesigned high-end Mac mini, and a refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro.
Software updates such as iOS 15.4 also seem to be on the cards and the launch of Apple Classical seems to fit quite well with the company's other expected announcements for the event, but there is yet to be concrete evidence suggesting that this will occur. "
More MacRumors, based on references to the “new app designed for classical music” embedded in the beta version of the next iOS, 15.5.
So it seems that Apple Classical is still imminent, but less speculation this time about exactly when it might be released!
@jen I saw an article which speculated that a future Apple event (in June I think) might include an announcement about a future release of Apple Classical. 😣
Ma rumours suggests that it will come out with the Os 16 update, if not sooner🤞🤞
Indeed, it might be released in June, or earlier, or in the autumn 🤷🏻♀️. I’m optimistic that it will be released, perhaps in 2022, but just as well none of us are holding our breath!
Well,I just purchased a year on Idagio after my 6 free months ran out, but I am going to remain cautiously optimistic about the Apple classical...
I think that the June Event, where some people speculated that there might be an announcement about classical music, happened yesterday. However, so far as I can see from googling, there was nothing that might interest us. 🙁
Here's my hopeful spin on that: This event was the Developer's Conference, so it usually focuses on hardware and platforms that are open to developers - things they can write software for or create accessories for. The Fall 2022 event tends to be more consumer focused. I cling to faint hope that we'll hear something then.
This has indeed been a prolonged affair. Perhaps it shows how inept Apple technicians actually are. How difficult can it be to fold an existing, very successful platform under a new umbrella? Surely no a year’s worth of effort (or lack of)?
