The next major version of macOS is expected to be announced next week during Apple's worldwide developer conference. Yesterday we shared exclusive screenshots of iOS 13, which displays Dark Mode, a new reminder app and a brand new screenshot annotation interface. Today we have screenshots that give us a glimpse of what the new music and TV apps will look like on macOS, shared exclusively with the 9to5Mac of people involved in their development.
As we previously reported, the new Music app was based on iTunes. Both the music and TV apps present a similar design language, with a gray page protection parts of content and a large area to the right of the content in question.
What can also be seen in the screens is the return of colorful side bar icons to macOS.
In both apps, the sidebar icons use the hue of the app, have a drop shadow and follow a continuous color gradient from top to bottom, very different from the black-and-white icons commonly used in sidebars in previous versions. by MacOS.
Music on macOS 10.15 retains the ability to synchronize a user's devices like iPhones and iPods. Devices appear in the sidebar just as they do on iTunes. The search box has been moved to the sidebar, which integrates both Apple Music categories and the user's local music library, inherited from iTunes.
The new TV app on macOS 10.15 uses a different approach to separating the user's library from web content, follows a similar pattern for the new books app that is also being introduced in MacOS 10.15. It uses a toolbar at the top of the "Watch Now", "Movies", "TV Shows", "Kids" and "Library" sections. Each section has its own sidebar with categories of content.
Apple is expected to announce macOS 10.15 next Monday, during its WWDC main note. Follow the 9to5Mac to keep up with all the news from the event.
