iTunes Store: Apple Starts Updating The Graphics

The testers who are using the pre-release version of iTunes 12 on OS X 10:10 Yosemite, will surely have noticed that something is changing. The design of the portal, it is updated to be more in line with iOS.

The new iTunes Store now features a flat design and shadows that are very reminiscent of the iOS version of the portal.

The photo that appears on screen in iTunes 11.x OS X 10.9 and earlier appearing on Mavericks 12 iTunes with OS X 10.10 Yosemite as a sliding screen animated by two dedicated buttons on either side of it.

Most of the details of the album is displayed on a white background, but there are some exceptions such as the U2 album, details of which are displayed on a black background. Change also some buttons like the one for the direct link and purchase the pack which are now outlined in white.

The current version is still available to the tester hybrid,because not all pages have the restyling. All this is likely to be presented in its full version with the official launch of the operating system.
