While iOS 7 is rumored to bring a new look to Apple's mobile OS, many of us are also hoping for new features. Brye Kobayashi has given the Music app a completely new look and feel with a concept that features the much anticipated Up Next feature already in iTunes 11.



Navigation:
The bottom navigation took up space that could be used to view more content. Now, it's been consolidated into the top menu for quick access anywhere. Currently playing tracks are displayed up top, along with the new Up Next queue.

Menu:
Press the menu button to bring up the sidebar menu. Switch between different views, change playlists, and search your entire music library.

Up Next:
Queue up songs to listen to after the current song finishes. Add tracks from anywhere, and arrange them so you never have to skip a song.

Now Playing:
The new navigation bar display the currently playing track info, along with a progress bar to show the duration of the track. Simply tap the middle to bring up the player.

Player:
The new player has been toned down, and enhanced with new features that make it easier to enjoy your music.

Controls:
The scrubber has been redesigned to be larger and more visible. And, the EQ has been moved directly into the player for quick access.

Playback:
The playback controls have been expanded to reduce accidental volume changes. This also allows the album artwork to be vertically centered.

Album Tracks:
Slide up on the album art to reveal other tracks from the same album.

Dashboard Mode:
Coverflow was great for eye-candy, but really didn't make browsing through albums very efficient. That's where Dashboard mode comes in. Instead of yet another way to browse albums, Dashboard mode makes it easy to switch songs while driving or on-the-go.

Timeline:
Dashboard mode shows you songs that are coming up, and ones you just listened to. Simply scroll left or right, and select a song. You can also view other tracks from the same album, and add more songs to the Up Next queue.

Take a look below at his take on Music in iOS 7...

Nice! Can't wait! I also bet when we search song or album, immediate results would show up alphabetically be album then songs!

Great job here! I think it looks beautiful, except for the progress bar that might be difficult to deal with.
