Microsoft made a lot of commotion when it announced that rival Apple will bring it’s iTunes to Windows Store. The press got excited, after all Apple has never been on good terms with Microsoft.
iTunes was poised to enter Windows Store by the end of this year, however the date seems to have got pushed back a bit. In a statement obtained by Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet, it looks like Apple will bring it’s app sometime in late 2018. An Apple spokesperson said that the app needed further optimizations,
“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.”
The addition of iTunes would have been great for Windows 10, specially for the Windows 10 S users. Locked only to Store apps, Microsoft’s Windows 10 S is primarily aimed at students. The lack of Apple’s only app on Windows will sorely hurt them.
