WWDC 2016: Here’s all the new features Apple will announce for your iPhone, iPad, MacBook – Express.co.uk
Apple hopes to avoid a monotonous look within the new app by placing huge emphasis on album artwork, which makes the new look appear “bolder, yet simpler,” according to people who have seen the updated Apple Music.
Redesigned from the ground-up, the new iOS app will use 3D Touch shortcuts to better effect, too.
Apple also plans to ditch the New tab, which contains a confusing mix of top charts, new artists, featured albums and curated playlists, in favour of a new tab dubbed, Browse.
For You is also expected to see a major update, thanks to a simplified user interface that should let music fans quickly access the recommended songs and artists.
According to sources familiar with Apple’s plans, the algorithms that powers the recommendations in the For You tab will not change.
Alongside the stripped-back new look, Apple is also expected to introduce some new features to the service during its WWDC developer conference.
The Cupertino company is believed to be working with record labels on a new deal that would see its music service automatically populated with lyrics.
Although Apple Music already has the ability to scroll through lyrics while a song is playing, music fans currently need to sync the lyrics with the track themselves via iTunes on the Mac.
