iOS 6 to Feature Redesigned App Store, iBookstore and iTunes Store
Apple has quietly noted on their iOS 6 preview website that the App Store, iBookstore and iTunes Store will be redesigned in the next version of the mobile operating system. Here’s the description from the page:
iOS 6 brings a new kind of shopping experience to the redesigned iTunes Store, App Store, and iBookstore. See the best of what’s new in music, movies, TV shows, apps, and books at the top of each store’s home page. Browse with a swipe of your finger and tap to learn more. Keep track of the music, movies, and TV shows you previewed by tapping the History button, and when you’re ready, tap Buy to add something to your collection. With iCloud, your preview history is always up to date on all your devices. So you can start shopping on your iPhone and continue on your iPad. And now you can buy your favorite music, apps, and more without leaving the app you’re in.
Apple has released iOS 6 Beta to developers already, so expect some updates on this to come. Stay tuned.
