Apple Unveils New iTunes
Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Posted by: Staff

Apple today announced the new iTunes for Mac and PC featuring a completely redesigned player, seamless integration with iCloud, and a stunning new look. The new iTunes is coming in October and will feature a dramatically simpler and cleaner interface that keeps your favorite iTunes content at the forefront. With iCloud integration, your music, movie and TV purchases made on any of your iOS devices or computers is conveniently displayed in your iTunes library on your Mac or PC, available anytime you want them. The redesigned iTunes Store, App Store and iBookstore have also been rethought to make buying your favorite content on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC simpler than ever.

"We created iTunes because we love music and we're going back to our roots with an incredibly clean design that keeps your music at the forefront," said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. "The new iTunes works seamlessly with iCloud, always keeping your entire library at your fingertips, and we're adding great new features that make listening to your music more fun."

The redesigned iTunes features a full-window interface on your Mac or PC that's simpler and cleaner, always keeping your favorite content in front of you. The new library view makes it easier to view your music, TV shows and movies, allowing you to click on the category of content you want to browse and that's all you will see. The expandable album view allows you to see track listings for an individual album, while letting you continue to browse your music library. The new search feature searches across your entire iTunes library, including music, movies and TV shows. The re-imagined MiniPlayer makes it easy to control your music with a small tool bar, you can skip to the next song or search for something new to play—all without having to open your library. Up Next is a fun new way to see what songs are coming up and queue songs or albums you want to hear next.

With iCloud, all of your iTunes purchases are in the cloud and can be accessed from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC or Apple TV. The new iTunes features seamless integration with iCloud, which automatically puts all of your purchases into your library on your Mac or PC, regardless of which device you used to make the purchase. iCloud also remembers where you are in your favorite movies or TV shows no matter which device you're viewing on.

The redesigned iTunes Store, App Store and iBookstore feature a clean design that makes shopping easier and more fun. Featured content is showcased right at the top and easy-to-browse shelves serve up popular music, movies and TV show choices. You also have a preview history that shows you all of the music, movies and TV shows you've sampled. iCloud keeps your preview history across all of your devices. Additionally, users can preview 90 second clips of songs while continuing to browse the store.

I'm not sure about all of the changes, but I can't wait to get my hands on it. I just hope that it performs faster. iTunes 10 had grown into such a hog.

Yay! Cool

I dig the new look of the library views, MiniPlayer and iTMS. The look plain and simple. And here's hoping to better performance.

I just rolled one of my older Mac minis back to Snow Leopard for Front Row. I'm hoping this will still be a go when it comes out.

I am excited too, but I probably use Spotify and Pandora more than iTunes now. I mostly just use iTunes to create playlists and browse the store every now and again. Maybe this update will change things around though. Then again, I don't know how without a subscription type service.
