If you use an Apple iPhone or an Apple iPad and owns a Windows OS powered PC, then you are not experiencing the complete iTunes, which helps to sync, update, and backup your iOS devices. A few months back, Apple made an announcement that they are planning to bring the Apple iTunes to Windows Store to provide faster software updates with official support. However, it looks like due to certain technical difficulties, the iTunes debut date for the Windows Store has been pushed further.
As of now, there is no expected time frame specified for the iTunes launch, however, it is not going to happen in 2017 what so ever. When ZDNet enquired about the Apple’s promise to publish the App on Windows Store, Apple has sent an official reply stating:
“We have been working with Microsoft to deliver the full iTunes experience to our customers and we need a little more time to get it right,”
According to Microsoft Expert Mary Jo Foley, Apple is working on an unrealised version of the iTunes for the Windows store, however, there is no timeframe regarding the actual launch of the same. This will not be a problem for the users who are running a standard version of Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, as these OSs have the ability to sideload .exe file (available on Apple official website) and install the iTunes.
However, the newer notebooks, which are running on the Windows 10S operating system can only install apps from the Windows Store, so, it is almost impossible to iTunes on these notebooks and it is making them go crazy over their choice.
Considering Microsoft offers its full suite of apps on MacOS and iOS, Apple is also working hard to give back something to the Microsoft Windows. Are you suffering from this Windows 10S operating system’s limitations? Share your views in the comment box.
