iTunes 11 takes cues from iOS in complete redesign

As expected, iTunes has been completely overhauled, and the changes look to be significant.

Taking obvious cues from the mobile space, albums open on the same screen, similar to folders on iOS. Along with the obvious visual differences comes new inline searching, and a mini player, which is sure to enthuse minimalists.

The new iTunes is simplified, integrated with iCloud, features a redesigned iTunes store, mini player, and a new featured called Up Next.

Up Next allows you to more efficiently view, and change the order of upcoming tracks.

The new iTunes is scheduled to drop in October of this year. What do you think?
