Apple Music Classical Finally Gets Promised CarPlay Support

When Apple first launched its dedicated classical music app Apple Music Classical earlier this year, CarPlay integration was noticeably absent. But classical music fans who enjoy listening on the go can rejoice, as Apple has finally delivered on bringing Apple Music Classical to CarPlay.

Apple pushed an update to Apple Music Classical that adds the CarPlay icon, indicating support for in-vehicle displays. However, early reports suggest the integration is still a bit shaky, with the app crashing when launched on CarPlay.

It seems Apple may have jumped the gun slightly by flipping the CarPlay switch before the feature was fully tested and ready for primetime. Thankfully, a quick bug fix update has already been issued. Version 1.2.1 of Apple Music Classical is now available and appears to resolve the CarPlay crashing issues.

With the fixes in place, you can now enjoy your ad-free classical music in the car with a seamless Apple Music Classical CarPlay experience. Control playback, browse curated playlists and recommendations, and admire classical album art on your vehicle’s dashboard screen.

Apple Music Classical first arrived in March 2023 as a dedicated spinoff app of Apple Music focused solely on classical recordings. It combines an extensive catalog spanning 5 million tracks with tools like chronological discographies and enhanced metadata.
