Yesterday, James Dempsey published an article highlighting all of the changes to Apple’s homepage tab all the way back to January 2000.
After the WWDC keynote on June 8, Apple updated the homepage tab yet again to include Apple Music. Here is an image highlighting all the major changes to Apple’s homepage tab over the past 15 years:
After the introduction of Apple Music, the iTunes and iPod tab have been condensed into one tab called Music. The original iTunes tab first appeared in September 2003 with the iPod being included for a combined “iTunes + iPod” tab the very next month.
“A Music tab on the Apple home page is not entirely new, nor is the term Apple Music. A Music tab first appeared at the introduction of the iTunes Music Store on April 28, 2003.* In addition, posters commemorating the launch listed the site address AppleMusic.com.”
Dempsey used the Internet Wayback Machine in order to track all the changes.
