Apple Music and iTunes, as expected, are getting overhauled.
The changes, announced at Apple’s WWDC event on Monday, are aimed at making both platforms less confusing and more user-friendly in response to frequent criticisms from users.
Here’s are the big changes you can expect.
- – The app’s redesign has big, bold, black text, white backgrounds, and larger album art.
- – The music library is redesigned for easier navigation.
- – A “recently added” section will show new music.
- – A new section called “Downloaded music” will hold all music purchased by users.
- – Lyrics will show up while songs are playing.
- – The “new” tab will be dropped and replaced with a “Browse” tab designed to make it easier to find new music.
- – The “For You” tab has a discovery mix to help you find new music, daily curated playlists tailored to you, and recently played songs.
- – The widely-panned “Connect” functionality has been added under “For You.”
- – New 3D Touch functionality will make it easier to preview tracks and share music on social media.
