Yesterday, Apple announced some of the details about iOS6, which will arrive next week. Coinciding with this update will be the release of the new, taller, thinner, lighter iPhone 5 (on September 21st). And following in October—a new iTunes!
So, what’s gonna be so great about this iTunes (iTunes 11!) upgrade?
Well, here’s a list that our friend’s at Hypebot put together of the key new features of this simpler, more intuitive iTunes (you can sing along to the melody of “We Didn’t Start the Fire”):
Full iCloud integration, new small and discreet mini-player, improved search and play features (while previewing a song, you can continue to browse, and it will keep playing), share directly from iTunes to Facebook and Twitter, easier playlists, click on an album and the window expands to show the tracks.
Oh, and new and improved EarBuds—now called “EarPods.”
