Apple Delays Major iTunes Update
Apple has delayed the launch of iTunes 11, which it had promised to release in October. The media player, which is often critiqued for its cluttered design and bloated feature set, is due an update which simplifies its interface and improves iCloud integration. "The new iTunes is taking longer than expected and we wanted to take a little extra time to get it right," Apple told CNET. Additions to the software include better playlist building and a powerful new mini-player. You can see the full iTunes 11 announcement in the player below. Rumors of an iTunes streaming service akin to Pandora or Spotify continue to swirl. Bloomberg reports that negotiations with the major labels are expected to close by mid-November, with some sort of iTunes radio service to launch in the first quarter of 2013. Watch the full iTunes 11 announcement here:
Did you used to use iTunes but jumped ship? Would a de-cluttered version tempt you back, or is it too late? Let us know what kind of media player you currently use in the comments.
