Apple Music Overhaul Detailed ➝

Mark Gurman, reporting for 9 to 5 Mac:

The new version of Apple Music, which Apple recently announced has 13 million users so far, focuses on a redesigned user-interface, a few new functions, and reorganization as well as simplification of existing features. The new user-interface ditches the current colorful and translucent look in favor of a simpler design that emphasizes black and white backgrounds and text.

Gurman expects these changes to be announced at WWDC, with a public release this fall alongside iOS 10.

I’m anxious to see how these changes look. I’ve never been a subscriber of the Apple Music service — beyond the free trial — and switched to Ecoute because the Music app is such a dreadful experience. I hope it’ll be a major improvement.
