9to5Mac: New looks for macOS media apps

Guilherme Rambo is at it again. He’s got screen shots from the next version of macOS over at 9to5Mac:

As we previously reported, the new Music app is based on iTunes. Both the Music and TV apps present a similar design language, with a gray sidebar listing sections of content and a large area on the right for the actual content.

What can also be seen in the screenshots is the return of colorful sidebar icons to macOS. In both apps, the sidebar icons use the tint color of the app, have a drop shadow and follow a continuous color gradient from top to bottom, very different from the monochrome icons that are common in sidebars in previous versions of macOS.

I like the color being added back to sidebars. I’m excited to see what else is in store for macOS this year.
