What's new about Apple Music in iOS 10

Apple Music iOS 10

One of the biggest changes in iOS 10 besides all the new messaging features is the redesigned Music app. Apple has created a simpler interface in an attempt to make Apple Music easier to use and songs easier to find. The app has larger fonts and bold titles with easy to understand tabs such as Library, Radio and Search. What makes Apple Music better than before is the ability to easily find your own music in the app.

Apple Music was met with criticism after the company redesigned the app and launched its own music streaming service in 2015. iOS users were confused on how to access music they had previously purchased through iTunes and how to listen to already existing playlists. The redesigned app in iOS 10 puts your music front and center in the easy to use Library section. The Artists tab looks like a Contacts page for musicians with an alphabetized list and easy to identify image icons.
