Apple’s rumored new Music and TV apps for Mac leaked in screenshots
Ahead of the official reveal of macOS 10.15 next week at Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference, new images claim to offer a first look at the new standalone Music and TV apps expected to arrive as part of the next-generation Mac software release.
Apple’s new Music app appears to be based on iTunes but with a much more modern design. The screenshot shows Apple Music sections including For You, Browse, and Radio within a sidebar with playback controls up top.
The leak comes curtesy of 9to5Mac.com, a day after alleged iOS 13 screenshots surfaced, showing the rumored new Dark Mode, refreshed Reminders app, Markup tools and “Find My” app expected to be announced next week.
In addition to the new Music app, the new TV app supposedly arriving with macOS 10.15 was also shown. The screenshots are not particularly revealing since the app content has been hidden to protect the leaker, but they do offer a glimpse at the overall look and feel of the new application.
Much like the new Music app, the TV application features a sidebar to navigate through content. Users will be able to pick from the Library subsections of Recently Added, Movies, TV Shows, and Downloaded along with genres such as Action and Adventure, Comedy, Drama, and Kids.
Apple also will include a toolbar for switching between Watch Now, Movies, TV Shows, Kids, and Library.
Despite an earlier icon leak, the images shared on Wednesday don’t show Apple’s new standalone Podcasts app expected to be announced next week alongside the rest of the new features arriving with macOS 10.15 at Apple’s highly anticipated public debut of the software.
Both the new Music and TV app are supposedly built on Apple’s so-called Marzipan developer tools that allow for a single app to be designed to run across iPhone, iPad, and Mac with a similar codebase.
