At WWDC today Apple has announced changes to Apple Music. Eddy Cue first noted that Apple Music has 15 million paying subscribers, which is the most of any streaming service during the first year. As expected, Apple has entirely redesigned the Music app interface with a new design.

Now, when you open the Music app the first screen you will see is the “Library,” as opposed to previous versions when the “For You” screen was shown. The “For You” interface has been revamped, however, to show a lot more information. Connect has also been integrated into the “For You” tab, as there is no longer a tab solely for Connect.

The Now Playing interface has also been refreshed with a card-like scrolling platform. There’s also support for lyrics at long last, like we expected.

The “Radio” tab has also been refreshed. It’s now much easier to view on-demand Beats 1 content, with each show having their own page with quick access to past-shows.

The new Music app will be available in iOS 10. The developer beta will be available today and it will release to the public this fall. Keep up with all of the new iOS 10 features here.

All-New Design for Apple Music & News Apple Music has an all-new design, bringing greater clarity and simplicity to every aspect of the experience. It uses a new design language that allows the music to become the hero and a new structure that makes it easy to navigate and discover new music. The Library, For You, Browse and Radio tabs have been completely redesigned to provide an even greater sense of place, and we’ve added a Search tab to make finding music even easier. All of these changes come together to create a design that is clear and intuitive. iOS 10 features a redesigned News app with a new For You, organized into distinct sections that make it easier to find stories, support for breaking news notifications and paid subscriptions.
