Apple reportedly contacting Internet radio providers for cover art for their stations
Apple has reportedly begun emailing Internet radio stations requesting they provide cover art for future use. Currently the radio selection in iTunes is a pretty drab affair, with basically a big text list of stations to choose from. No glitz, no glamor, and it all looks kind of boring. According to a letter obtained by MacRumors, this looks set to change:
Speculation is that somehow, Apple may implement the existing radio setup into iTunes Radio when it launches with iOS 7 in the fall. That's not exactly a far fetched idea, and could help explain why Apple is now asking for cover art at a resolution that would conveniently look good on a Retina Display. We're also expecting iTunes Radio to appear on the desktop at around the same time, though what that may look like is still unknown at this point.
