With the launch of macOS Catalina, Apple removed any trace of iTunes, that all-in-one application that had become a headache for all users who were forced to use it. due to the large number of functions it included although in the previous years a few functions had been removed to add new ones.
However, in Windows, users still have the iTunes application at their disposal, an application that integrates all Apple services, including the application to enjoy the streaming music service of the boys from Cupertino. But that could change this year if the latest rumor published by an Italian website is fulfilled.
According to the Aggiornamenti Lumia website, Apple plans to launch a new application for Windows, an application that will be available directly through the Microsoft Store, where we can currently find the iTunes application. This post doesn’t detail what the app is about but it’s not hard to imagine what apps it can be about: Apple Music and Apple TV +.
Last year, Apple posted a job offer looking for engineers to build the next generation of multimedia applications for Windows, a job offer where one of the fundamental requirements was to have experience in the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), in order to create a compatible application for both Windows 10 and the rest of Windows ecosystems, which in this case would be Microsoft’s Xbox.
In this way, Apple wants facilitate access to Apple Music and Apple TV + to users who use the Microsoft console as a multimedia center in their homes. iTunes came to the Microsoft Store in 2018, an application with which we can enjoy Apple Music, our favorite podcasts, read books … functions that since the launch of macOS Catalina, have become completely independent.
