Earlier this year, Apple’s Eddy Cue had promised that the Cupertino company is working on a slight redesign for iTunes to make Apple Music easier to use. The update was supposed to be a part of the OS X 10.11.4 update from Apple, but that never happened, as the update was seemingly delayed by Apple. Now, a source of MacRumors has shared some screenshots of iTunes 12.4 that gives us a look at the slightly redesigned interface.
The screenshots show that Apple will be introducing a new dropdown menu to switch between the various kinds of media: Music, TV Shows, Movies etc. This menu can be customised, so you can hidden the section that you don’t use regularly.
The sidebar on the left has been made permanent to make it easier to jump to different sections of your library like Songs, Genres, Albums, Artists, and more. The mini player has also received a slightly design tweak that puts the Up Next song button at a more prominent location. Lastly, Apple will also be making menus “easier to use” with this update and will include new navigation options.
MacRumors source suggests that Apple will be released iTunes 12.4 sometime within the next few weeks. Considering that Apple will be announcing an Apple Music refresh at WWDC, it is likely that the iTunes 12.4 update will go live before that.
Do you like the changes that Apple has made in iTunes 12.4?
