Apple iTunes is coming to the Windows Store by the end of this year

Apple will bring iTunes to the Windows Store with support for Apple Music and iTunes Store

Apple will bring iTunes to the Windows Store by the end of this year. In Build Day 2 Keynote, Microsoft’s Terry Myerson announced that the iTunes app with experience similar to the desktop version will come to the Windows Store. The app will have full iPhone support and access to the Apple Music and iTunes Store.

Microsoft wants developers to create more Windows Store-based apps instead of the traditional Win32 program. The company has made it easier for developers to distribute their existing Win32 applications through the store. Despite all these efforts, the app selection in Microsoft’s Windows Store is lighter than Android and iOS. With iTunes in the Windows Store, Microsoft has certainly made a big winner.

The iTunes app in the store will be a big help as it will be the only way to access iTunes on Microsoft’s new Windows 10 OS. The newer variants of Windows 10 only support apps from the Windows Store and will not allow users to install traditional programs without upgrading to Windows 10. With iTunes in the Windows Store, Microsoft is giving iPhone users the option to purchase Windows 10 S devices, and sync their phones.

At this point, it’s not clear if Apple is rewriting the app for the Windows Store or using the desktop bridge to port the app. Microsoft didn’t even show how the service would look in the Windows Store. The software maker further highlighted that Spotify, the SAP digital boardroom will also be coming to the Windows Store this year.
