Unfortunately, Windows 10 S users and Windows 10 users who rest only on a Microsoft Store will have to wait a small longer for iTunes to arrive. Apple currently confirmed to ZDNet that iTunes will skip a scheduled end-of-year release.
Apple’s late CEO Steve Jobs once likened releasing iTunes on Windows as “like giving a potion of ice H2O to somebody in hell,” though that didn’t stop a association from releasing a best-known app on PCs — a useful pierce to sell iPods to millions of PC users. Since then, a attribute between Apple and Microsoft thawed adequate that Apple announced iTunes for a Microsoft Store (née Windows Store) in June, earnest a recover by a finish of 2017.
“We have been operative with Microsoft to broach a full iTunes knowledge to a business and we need a small some-more time to get it right,” Apple told ZDNet. Although a association did not yield a new recover date, a app is still approaching to see a Microsoft Store recover during some point, presumably in 2018.
While a further of iTunes to a Microsoft Store competence seem to impact few people in light of iTunes’ long-term accessibility as a Windows app that runs on many Windows 10 machines, a Windows 10 chronicle won’t run on Windows 10 S devices. Following Apple’s lead with a App Store, Microsoft curates a Microsoft Store with a guarantee of softened security, installation, updates, and battery performance; inclination using Windows 10 S exclusively run Microsoft Store apps. If iTunes entrance is urgently needed, Windows 10 S users can opt to ascent to Windows 10 Pro, stealing the Microsoft Store-only limitation.
