Looking forward to downloading iTunes from the Microsoft Store? It looks like that won’t be happening, not this year at least. Apple recently confirmed to ZDNet that it still needs some time to get the software right, and will not be able to deliver its promise made earlier this year.
“We have been working with Microsoft to deliver the full iTunes experience to our customers and we need a little more time to get it right.” – Apple spokesperson told ZDNet.
Earlier this year at Build 2017, Apple announced that iTunes would be heading to the Microsoft Store sometimes this year. According to the company, the Windows version of iTunes will not be a tuned down variant. Instead, it aims at delivering the full iTunes experience from the app, which also include support for iPhone and other Apple devices.
Sadly, while we know that iTunes will eventually be launched in the Microsoft Store, neither Apple nor Microsoft provided any timeline. Apple also did not specify what is causing the delay. This is definitely a major disappointment, especially for Windows 10 S users, who can only download apps from the Microsoft Store.
