  • Apple: iTunes 11 Has Been Delayed Until End of November


    In September, Apple revealed that iTunes 11 would be coming to the public at the end of October, offering a brand new look and interface that would be faster and more appealing to the eyes.

    While many of us have been patiently waiting for Apple to launch this update now that it’s currently the end of October, bad news arises, as iTunes 11 unfortunately won’t be coming until the end of November according to a report by CNET. An Apple Spokesperson is quoted replying to the question of when we will be seeing iTunes 11:

    Originally Posted by Apple:
    The new iTunes is taking longer than expected and we wanted to take a little extra time to get it right. We look forward to releasing this new version of iTunes with its dramatically simpler and cleaner interface, and seamless integration with iCloud before the end of November.
    The Spokesperson explains that Apple is working hard to “get it right” before releasing iTunes 11. This is probably a good thing, as ensuring that the update is as solid as possible will help keep Apple from releasing another Apple Maps scenario. iTunes 11 is expected to also bring tighter iCloud integration, which will mean some cool new features for iTunes users.

    iTunes 11 will be available as a free software update for Mac and Windows users and will be offered as a download from Apple’s Web site when released. We will have more on the subject as more information surfaces.

      Some silly programmer got iTunes to run smoothly and now they need to reprogram it to bring any machine it runs on to a crawl

      It probably works fine on OSX they are still probably trying to stop the blue screen of death on their windows machines though...

      I guess this is good, but pretty lame to wait until the 30th to break this unfortunate news to those of us looking forward to an iTunes update.

      What the duck! Apple is a giant company. They should have had this damn release finished and packaged with a ribbon on the box before the product event. This should not be happening.

      Wow.... Well, at least they're straight forward and say they need more time to make it right instead of leaving everyone in the dark with a crappy iTunes update.

      So far, this is not making me look forward to buying Apple products if everything Apple is getting worse and worse in quality control and lack of innovation

      That used to be the case. A tool for syncing your devices and that's it because well how do I put this politely? Put it quite simply I can't! The current iteration of iTunes is c**p and there's no other word for it. At the moment iTunes is a tool, a tool and nothing but a tool. There's no heart or soul and the smallest amount of innovation. It does not reflect an Apple product. That is exactly why people are looking forward to updating their iTunes...

      I just hope it has better playlist recovery and network compatibility. Hate that I store my playlist data on the network and god forbid that itunes starts and its not reachable. Insta clears the entire damn library/playlists etc with no easy way of getting it all back.

      An off topic question that just popped into my mind, if Apple is updating iTunes for Windows what ever happened to Safari on Windows? I still have it but don't remember seeing any updates and it is no longer on their website. Is it officially dead now or what?

      I was so disappointed when I learned this news today, but I can totally understand making sure the product is right before release.
