Behold the iTunes 11 Icon
Application gets updated from the ground up with new features and graphics
Apple literally revamped iTunes 11 from head to toe, enhancing every existing feature while adding new ones. Playback is a breeze, and the store interface is quite a looker. But that’s not all that’s changed aesthetically.Few people noticed this, but when iTunes 11 installs over iTunes 10, it also updates the app’s icon in the OS X dock.
As soon as you launch iTunes 11 for the first time, the change goes into effect, replacing the vibrant iTunes 10 icon with a less eye-popping blue badge bearing the “iconic” musical note right smack in the middle.
The new icon looks more like a physical object, a button, if you will. When iTunes 10 came out, Apple was under heavy scrutiny from its fanbase over changing the app’s longstanding CD-style icon to a digital, cold blue piece of artwork. Hopefully the new one will set everyone at ease.
