Apple has rolled out a flatter, more minimalist looking iTunes Store for users testing out OS X Yosemite. iTunes 12 features a flatter looking store and icons have dropped the use of drop shadows. Apple also drops the card-style carousel at the top for a flat, scrollable banner.

Download buttons for apps, movies, and other content have been flattened as well, getting rid of the drop shadow and slight gradient around the buttons.

The redesign is apparent in most iTunes Store sections, including Movies, TV, and Music. Some pages have yet to be redesigned but they should be done by the time OS X Yosemite is released.

The redesign of the iTunes store isn’t groundbreaking, but it does complete the flat, colorful redesign we were introduced to with iOS 7. Now Apple has a consistent user experience among all its products.

We shouldn’t have to wait long for Apple to release the next version of OS X. The company has a mystery announcement this Thursday, October 16th where it is expected to reveal new iPads, Mac hardware, and of course Yosemite.
