With the beta release of iOS 8.4, Apple has given us our first look at the operating system’s new built-in Music app, which has been completely redesigned and packed with much more functionality. While the new features are nice, the new aesthetics are the biggest part about this redesign.
Apple has rolled out its first beta release of iOS 8.4, which includes the first preview of the operating system’s new Music app. The new app features a stylish design with plenty of thoughtful interface touches, including a mini-player that remains visible while you’re looking around the app – a feature that will be familiar to iTunes app users. The new-look app is expected to integrate later this year with Apple’s new music streaming service, effectively a relaunch of its Beats Music acquisition from last year. As 9to5Mac reports, Apple is expected to announce the service at its Worldwide Developer Conference in June. Various changes have been made to the Music app, including a new split-screen view on the iPad, and the removal of landscape view support on the iPhone.
