Leaked screenshots obtained by MacRumors show only minor tweaks coming to Apple’s iTunes 12.4 redesign, expected to launch in late May or early June. The toggler to switch between types of media has been changed from the existing icons to a dropdown menu, with forward and back buttons that can also be used to flip between sections. The updated left sidebar provides quicker access to specific songs or albums within iTunes. Both the media toggler and sidebar can be edited to display only desired types of content.
Menus have been streamlined to be more user friendly and provide new navigation options. The mini player was given a few tweaks, including moving the Up Next song feature to the right side of the player for increased visibility. All in all the updates are minor, perhaps because most of Apple’s focus is currently aimed at a major overhaul to Apple Music. It’s also possible that bigger changes will arrive with OS X 10.12 to correspond with the release of iOS 10.
