  • First Itunes 11 Details Emerge



    9to5Mac is reporting today that Apple has started seeding the next major release of iTunes, iTunes 11.

    The new version of iTunes according to 9to5Mac’s sources will focus on “under-the-hood” changes and perhaps a few minor cosmetic alterations as well. However, aside from the minor user-interface changes, the major updates include compatibility with iOS 6 and improved iCloud integration.

    It’s nice to know Apple is future proofing their iTunes updates through iOS 6 (whenever that comes out), but the inclusion of an iCloud dedicated settings panel within iTunes is something that should have been released alongside iCloud last year. The panel will of reportedly include features such as iTunes Match, iTunes in the Cloud, and iOS device backups.

    Also, 9to5Mac claims that Apples acquisition of company Chomp earlier this year to help with the iTunes Store and App Store revamp will be realized by this summer or early fall. According to 9to5Mac’s sources the Chomp team may have been fully integrated into an Apple team that “specifically exists” to improve content discovery in the iTunes application and the online store.

    Bring on the changes. In the meantime stare at the lone screenshot of iTunes 11.

      Too bad my/our iPhones last 3 hours with iCloud integration throughout the day.

      Well Not that i'm a Fan of faster since it's fast enough for me..I'd like to see a refreshed state of iTunes although the cloud setting are A nice touch..i still Do it all from my iPhone & iPad..so that's not a big Deal..BUT...content discovery is all i'm about..start getting some older shows that i am unable to get..nor am i will go On Hulu for them because Hulu & Netflix don't have the specific shows i want. BUT..the mention of iOS6..makes me wonder what the Next Gen iPhone will have. Could it have iOS 6? i doubt it since this is the first i've heard about it. Shame i don't have connections like these to find out what iOS6 MIGHT look like.

      iOS 6 will probably look a hell of a lot like iOS 5

      I would love a massive UI update for iTunes. It just doesn't mesh (visually) with iOS, OS X, or even Windows. It's ugly, its boring, it's been the same since the beginning of time. It's really time for a refresh, especially with Mountain Lion on the horizon.

      iTunes gets better with every release. Can't be said of most music engines these days. I can't wait to see what is done. I too think iTunes needs a "fresh look" and feel. Nothing really wrong with the current setup..its just the competition is copying what is existing and now its time for Apple to set the bar again..just saying :]

      If they're taking requests - which they aren't - how about a smaller footprint/less resource hogging on Windows PCs?

      Honestly who cares about grammar and spelling? if my phone doesn't catch it I'm not going to bother. That's what technology is for!

      sorry but iTunes does not get better with every update/version i would say it often gets worse and really slow to the point its now almost unusable and this is on a brand new pc! its high time iTunes was rebuilt from the ground up! it needs to be made faster and nicer to look at, the main basic look has not changed since around version !

      Its still as slow as hell, and hangs at the worst moment. Still can't handle syncing different items to different devices, and you can only sync your device to one computer

      It needs to be redesigned from the ground up.

      iTunes on the Mac works beautifully. Unlike on the PC, it is actually NOT painful to use.

      Drag and drop apps. I don't want any of this syncing and transferring purchases ********. I use ********** to install apps that I pay for, just because it's infinitely easier. Why do I need all of my apps on my Mac and my iPod/Pad?!
