iTunes launch in the Microsoft Store is apparently “imminent”

March 21, 2018

iTunes has been announced for the Microsoft Store for months, but its finally on its way here.

A Reddit poster by the name MeGustaTortuga who identifies as an AppleCare advisor (and has done so for months), posted on the r/Apple subreddit that the firm plans to release iTunes for Windows 10 imminently, and has trained its advisors on how to use the app.

Unfortunately, for those expecting a universal Windows app, or something more akin to a native Windows 10 app, expect disappointment. Apple will be making no user-facing adaptations, instead simply porting the existing desktop app wholesale.

Like Spotify does, it’ll migrate data from existing installations, including backups and saved playlists to the new installation, so you can get started as soon as the install is completed.

Itunes for Windows 10 is expected to debut in the Microsoft Store, and may well appear with the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update.
