Instead, the service appears as a scaled-up version of the mobile app, with black bars around the sides.

Affected users have taken to social media and forums to express their frustration with the lack of an optimized version of Apple Music Classical app for iPad.

Uh, why isn’t there an iPad version, and why no shuffle?

Is Apple Music Classical not optimized for IPad?

The demand for a dedicated app for iPad is growing, with users pointing out that it would make it easier to navigate the service and appreciate the beauty of classical music.

The issue has also been discussed on Reddit and Apple support forums, with many users asking for a version of the app that is optimized for the iPad.

Several are demanding features like CarPlay support, Shortcuts integration, songs downloads and more.

The new Apple Music Classical app is a good start. Here’s how it needs to grow:
– iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and CarPlay support
– Shortcuts integration
– Allow songs to be downloaded
– Classical stations
– Browser support
– @AppleClassical for Android (coming soon)

The lack of an iPad version for Apple Music Classical is a bit surprising given that Apple Music is available on just about every Apple product.

But it’s probably just a matter of time before the iPad gets a good share of the Apple Music Classical app. Until then, stay tuned as we will keep you posted about any developments we spot.
