Apple apparently loves being monochromatic these days. A bunch of their UI elements were stripped of their color over the last year. The color change is evident in the Lion developer builds, and it’s also been that way in iTunes for a while now. But, Apple seems to have changed it up again in iTunes 10.2. Instead of keeping the icons in the prefered monochrome, they’ve added a splash of color again.
This may, or may not be a tell about what’s to come with Lion. With Lion set to be released later this year, Apple’s likely testing our reactions to the changes. We have no idea how it’s all going to play out, but personally I prefer the splash of color. There’s enough grey in the world at this time of year. A couple of colored icons could really change the mood.
