More than a year after Apple purchased Primephonic and promised a 'dedicated' classical music experience, there's a lot of silence.

2022 is over-so where is Apple Music Classical?

In August 2021, Apple announced the acquisition of classical music service Primephonic (fave.co/3FnFAK3) and promised that the "renowned classical music experience is coming to Apple Music." Apple promised Primephonic exclusive content and playlists within Apple Music and a "dedicated experience" that would land "in the coming months."

That first part of that promise came to pass-there's a Primephonic category Apple Music (though it certainly isn't very well promoted) with some nice playlists. And of course, Apple Music has its own Classical section (fave.co/3GuLUkj) with a nice catalog of spatial audio tracks that is also not very well promoted. But the second part, which many have speculated would arrive as a separate app, hasn't made its debut.
