APPLE : iTunes


iTunes 11.1 will have new iOS app organizer


by Michael Grothaus


Last night Apple seeded the eighth Developer Preview of the upcoming OS X 10.9 Mavericks. While there were no significant changes since the last build, this release does include the next version of iTunes, as images by Filipe EspĆ³sito shows.

The app screen organizer in iTunes has received frequent criticism since its inception, and iTunes 11.1 features a revamped iOS app organizer with a more logical home screen page layout, so users don't have to drag apps via a vertical layout anymore. Instead, home screen pages will appear side by side.

While iTunes 11.1 is certain to show up in the final shipping release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, presumably in October, it's possible we may see a version of it released on Wednesday to support the release of iOS 7.
