Apple Music Redesign Is Expected To Be Unveiled At WWDC
Apple’s music streaming service has been with us for quite a while now. Now, it seems that Apple is looking forward to introduce a major redesign that will make Apple Music much more intuitive and easy to use. Moreover, the Apple Music redesign will be unveiled in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Currently, Apple Music has 13 million subscribers and judging by the numbers, the service isn’t going anywhere.

The changes part of Apple Music redesign includes a complete redo of the user interface in an effort to make it easier to navigate. Moreover, the changes will also include better integration of streaming and download options as well as expansion for the online radio service. Bloomberg’s report also hinted at an off-stage drama that accompanied the integration of Beats and Apple staff. According to Bloomberg:
“The deal sparked a rare culture clash within Apple that led to the departure of several key managers and, most important, created a product that many critics say doesn’t meet Apple’s own lofty standards. Apple is still struggling to integrate its employees and unite the streaming and downloading businesses into a cohesive music strategy.”
Some Beats employees are finding it difficult to run according to Apple’s micromanaging methos. Nonetheless, Apple sees this as an important step to maintain quality. With Spotify’s 30 million users, it seems Apple Music still lacks a lot behind. This could be due to the fact that Apple was pretty late in launching the music streaming service. Still if we’re talking about numbers, Apple Music does have a chance in the future of streaming music if it manages to absorb some from competition.
To tackle the market share scenario, Apple’s move to revamp Apple Music is definitely viable. This might attract some potential customers that could go a long way. Apart from this, Apple also has to remove other managerial hurdles that are building along the way. So Apple has a long way to go and revamping its music streaming service is a part of it.
Apple Music subscription is priced at $9.99 for an individual per month and $14.99 for family per month. Apple Music has faced some mixed views since its launch, while some might bemoan on missing features and bugs, Beats users are definitely glad to enjoy the free service. This is it for now, folks.
