Following a day after the executive management shake-up, Apple has officially delayed the release of its latest upgrade to iTunes (i.e. iTunes 11) saying it needed more time to “get it right”. The new iTunes software that offers more cloud integration and completely redesigned player was due to launch this month, but failed to meet its late-October deadline.
The company issued no formal announcement about the change and quietly delayed the release. When All Thing Digital editor reached Apple for a comment, the Cupertino Company Spokesman Tom Neumayr told:
“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 company has updated the portion of its website with an orange tab showcasing the upcoming iTunes 11 update to read “Coming in November.”
The new version iTunes 11 is supposed to have a streamlined interface and improved integration with iCloud, its service for synching music and video content. The new media player will allow users to create playlist easily, do a full-library search. The newly designed iTunes 11 have redesigned mini-player a new library view and an expandable album view that allows you to see all the songs on the album.
It is said to be the most significant upgrade to iTunes in the 11-year life of the program. Excited?
