Apple Unveils New iTunes, Coming in October
Apple unveiled the newest version of iTunes Wednesday. The revamped version of the desktop app has a new edge-to-edge design. When you click on an album within iTunes it expands in place, somewhat like when you click on a folder in iOS.
Each album has a feature called “In the Store” where you can see at a glance all the top songs on that particular record.
Artists can opt to share photos with fans through iTunes. Coldplay, for instance, has already uploaded some photos to the service for fans to check out.
A split-screen view allows you to see your library while you’re adding songs to a playslist. The “Current Playing” window also has a drop-down menu available in the top-right corner that you can click on to see what’s coming up next in your playlist.
The mini-player within iTunes also saw a redesign, and now allows you to manage playlists and upcoming songs. iCloud is also now built into iTunes.
Apple says to expect to see the next-generation of iTunes launch in October, however, it did not provide an exact release date. The iOS version of the app also saw an upgrade today and is expected to be released later this month.
