The music experience between MacOS and iOS is inconsistent as they use two separate applications (iTunes and Apple Music). The iTunes experience is outdated and lacks in social features that other music streaming services provide.
Replace iTunes with an Apple Music desktop experience. Introduce a fresh design which lends styles from the mobile version of the app. Implement new features and interactions to create a refined music experience for Apples computer users.
Album covers can be interacted with the user during the hover state adding a small yet refined level of detail to the experience.
Both versions of the iTunes mini players have been redesigned to follow the refreshed design style. The mini player also includes some subtle animation effects.
