A report in the Wall Street Journal said that iTunes 11 could be launched today, that is November 29. The latest edition of Apple’s most coveted music software has been delayed for one month, since Apple wanted to work on it a little more. This was reported by Wall Street Journal yesterday, in the profile of Eddy Cue, Senior Vice President at Apple.
Even though it did not mention a definite date for release, Apple’s self-imposed deadline draws to a close on November 30. So, the probability of iTunes 11 release today is high.
The much-awaited release slated for the previous month got delayed and was rescheduled for the end of November. Apple spokesperson had said that the company needed a little more time to fix on some aspects of this popular music store. The new software is said to have cleaner as well as simpler interface and will have seamless integration to iCloud.
The last time Apple updated iTunes was in September 2010 with its iTunes 10. Ever since then, Apple has constantly improved it by adding features like iTunes in cloud and iTunes Match. It also facilitated 1080p videos from iTunes Store.
The latest version, iTunes 11 is said to have a lot in store for the users. A simpler UI, integration with Facebook and Twitter, better iCloud support are some of the expected features in the new software. iTunes 11 will also be devoid of Ping, the failed music-oriented social network. When it comes to visual design, reports indicate that album covers could come into use in the new version. These album covers will then expand to show songs from your library as well as from iTunes Store.
