While it’s a well-known fact that Apple is focusing on video content, with original TV series set to arrive soon on Apple Music. The company is now tipped to revamp Apple Music to a more video-centric interface with the launch if iOS 11, and also host as many as 10 original shows by the end of 2017.
As per a Bloomberg report, the revamp of Apple Music will be driven primarily by the company’s plans for original video content. The video-centric approach to Apple Music will come as part of a redesign that is expected to be introduced with iOS 11, which will traditionally be unveiled at WWDC in June, and launch alongside the next iPhone. Apple announced an end-to-end overhaul for the music service last year at WWDC and is expected to take the same route this year as well.
Apple’s video content plans currently include documentaries on Drake’s music label, Cash Money Records and Clive Davis, Planet of the Apps, and the recently delayed Carpool Karaoke. Meanwhile, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, featuring Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, was just announced as an Apple Music exclusive, while the Bloomberg report tips a documentary about Bad Boy Records is due as well.
The Cupertino giant recently delayed the release of its first original video series – Carpool Karaoke, which was earlier slated for April but is now expected to come later this year. With the new information, it appears that the delay in release might be associated with the redesign of the Apple Music as well.
