Since then, the company has not commented on the expansion plans in public. Hence, it is still unclear if the app will be published in 2023 itself or not.

When Primephonic shut down in September 2021, users received free access to Apple Music for six months, the report said.

In September 2021, it was reported that the iPhone maker was preparing to launch a standalone classical music app that would be available along with its flagship 'Apple Music' application.

Users were likely to get the standalone classical music app in the iOS 16 update that was planned before the end of last year.
