Launch Of iTunes 11 Expected Today

Nov 29 2012, 2:00am CST | by

Well rumored anyway

Today could usher in the next chapter in Apple's digital content distribution platform. Rumors are beginning to point to a debut for iTunes 11 as early as today. This would just narrowly fall with Apple's previously promised release date of 'no later than November 30.'

Although, if you look back far enough, Apple had originally said that the new iTunes version would be available in October. The company changed its tune (no pun intended) due to unspecified delays, and then started to assure consumers that it would be ready by the end of November.

Well, that clock is also ticking. If iTunes 11 does roll out tomorrow, it will be without much fanfare. Apple certainly has not announced any sort of press conference or anything of that nature to show it off.

But iTunes isn't nearly as important as, say, a new edition of the iPad or iPhone. It is a content delivery system. The enhancements with iTunes 11 will no doubt be less than earth-shattering.

However, it is expected that Apple will finally use the new version to integrate other products and services with iTunes. So you'll be able to have a much deeper connection between your iTuens account and your iCloud account. In addition, Apple will likely enhance the social connectivity features with iTunes 11, so you'll be able to post your purchases on Facebook and Twitter, and all that sort of social jazz.

It's also possible that the new iTunes will have better content discovery options, especially for users trying to find new apps, which continues to be a less-than-perfect experience for Apple's mobile infrastructure.

iTunes 12 introduces new look, less intuitive interface

Oct 24 2014 5:49am CDT | Source: Mac World

It’s been two years since the last major update to iTunes, with changes I called “the most radical alterations to the program’s interface since its inception.” I could use those same words to describe iTunes 12, which features yet another interface overhaul. But the other shock is that iTunes 12 is light on new features, just a Recently Added section in some views, and a new Get Info window, along wit ...

While many users were happy to get a free album from iTunes, the recent promotion of U2's Songs of Innocence LP done through Apple -- where every iTunes user had a copy added to their past purchases list -- rubbed some listeners the wrong way. Bono, the lead singer for the group, has issued an apology for what he characterized as an overzealous move that resulted from a combination of "a drop of megalomania ...

‘Oops, sorry about that:’ Bono responds to ‘Songs of Innocence’ iTunes deal

Oct 14 2014 6:35pm CDT | Source: 9to5Mac

iTunes customers who didn’t watch Apple’s iPhone keynote last month were a bit surprised last month to discover that they suddenly owned a copy of U2’s new album “Songs of Innocence,” even though they’d never bought it. The band had partnered with Apple to add the album to every single iTunes account for free in what they called the largest album debut ever. iTunes users were less than thrilled at the arrangement, noting that the album was being autom ...
