App Store Promo Suggests Redesigned 'Remote' App Coming Soon

A promotion occasionally visible on the Colombian App Store suggests Apple will soon be releasing an updated version of the Remote app that allows control of Apple TV and Mac/PC iTunes installations from iOS devices, complete with an iOS 7 redesign.

It's not the first hint that Apple has a redesign in the works -- some users have noticed that the most recent release of iTunes has a new Remote icon as well.

The last major update to Remote occurred nearly a year ago with support for iTunes 11, with a bug fix release coming this past January. Last week, Apple released updates for Podcasts, iTunes Movie Trailers, and Find My iPhone apps with iOS 7 redesigns, along with redesigned versions of the iWork and iLife suites.

Aside from Remote, iBooks, iTunes U and Find My Friends are also awaiting iOS 7 redesigns.

Remote is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Thanks Sebastián!

You forgot iBooks, that needs an update too.

I'm thinking (hoping) these get updated tomorrow to coincide with new iPad release.

Leave Mac OS X alone, we (I) don't need these crappy Icons in OS X, leave that for iOS (Toys).


I think you're in the wrong thread. Also, wrong forum and website!

Can't wait. Use this app so much, and it won't stop crashing on iOS 7. I also can't wait to see the new design.
