The Apple Music redesign is serious, and Gurman has the details

Apple Music sigue creciendo y ya cuenta con 13 millones de suscriptores de pago

Eduardo Archanco has given us the first signs of this rumour this very morning: it seems that Apple wants to relaunch Apple Music by radically changing its interface and making it much more user-friendly. This would be the result of the negative criticism of its complications, which carry a legacy of iTunes that should have disappeared long ago.

Well, it seems that this news has little to do with rumors, because Mark Gurman has just published the supposed details of that redesign of Apple Music in 9to5Mac. According to the editor-in-chief, this redesign will appear in mid-June as a beta after being presented in the WWDC keynote.

Let’s go into those details of the redesign: the new Apple Music would abandon the translucent look and adopt an even simpler interface, in completely smooth colors and backgrounds that will be in black and white . No more having the interface adopt the colours of the album cover being played at the time: everything will be more uniform.

Apple’s San Francisco font will be used even more, something we will also see in more services besides Apple Music over the next few months; and those with an iPhone 6s will be able to use 3D touch in the menus and sections of the service. The “For You” section , which focuses on song recommendations, will be highlighted.

The new Apple Music will be one of the great new features of iOS 10

The What’s New tab will disappear to make way for a new section for exploring content, more Spotify style, and what will remain without much change will be the Connect sections and Beats 1 radio. The idea is to make this new Apple Music one of the great new features of iOS 10 , which should be out this fall.

Changes will also be noted in the tvOS version of Apple Music, as well as in iTunes via a service update. And by the way, it seems that early next year we will have a major update of iTunes of which there are no details yet.
