We have been discovering several new features while using iOS 5 beta on the iPad. Here we will cover the new iOS 5 music app on the iPad.

The first thing you will notice is a new icon and a new look for the music app. There’s also a new Store button on the bottom left of the screen. It’s basically a link that opens the iTunes music app for browsing and purchasing new music, videos, etc.

With iOS 5, users can delete music directly from the music app on the device. Just swipe on a song and a delete box will pop up. This will only work for individual songs, you can’t delete an entire album at once but it’s so fast it would only takes a few seconds to delete an album.

Another nice feature of the music app is you can swipe left or right on the album art to skip between tracks. This feature doesn’t work from the lock screen, but the lock screen does have the arrows to go back and or skip a track.

The one thing the iPad music app is missing is Cover Flow, but it’s still an exceptional music app.
