During today’s keynote Apple showed a slide that mentioned iOS 6 would get some “Redesigned Stores” but Scott Forstall never went into detail on what the stores look like. Now that we’ve got iOS 6 loaded up on our iPhones we’re finally able to see what the new stores look like and boy are they a great improvement over the predecessors. Here’s what the new App Store, iTunes, and iBooks look like in iOS 6:

Pre-order, Download, or Purchase

Even though there are some holes and missing features in the stores that are annoying – like not being able to view your past purchases in iBooks – we think the redesigned stores are a significant improvement. But what do you think? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments.

    THey redesigned a lot actually. You guys were spot on with the new silvery-blue look. The music app looks entirely different. While some apps, like youtube keep the same black tab bar, others establish their own look.

    Facebook and Twitter in iTunes?… Say goodbye to Ping! (and good riddance!)
