It’s WWDC time again, as people gather in San Francisco for Apple’s annual developer conference.

Its keynote takes place tonight, and is expected to include news on the plans for the second year of Apple Music.

That’s likely to also mean an update on the service’s growth, having reached 13 million subscribers in April this year.

Recent reports have shed more light on changes that Apple hopes will fuel more growth, including a revamped user interface for Apple Music on iOS devices, and even more focus on the ‘For You’ recommendations aspect.

Beats 1 and the underused Connect are not expected to change greatly, although we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple surprised us with one or more additional Beats channels.

We are also expecting a redesign (again) of the iTunes desktop app. The keynote takes place tonight, so we’ll have full details for you in tomorrow’s Bulletin – plus information about non-music news at the event, from iOS 10 and the next evolution of Siri to what happens next for Apple’s smartwatch and TV set-top box.
