Yes, you heard correctly. The Windows version of the iTunes app is no longer downloadable from the Microsoft Store, following the latest update.

But don’t panic, because this is not a bug, it is a conscious decision that Redmond officials made, for some unknown reason, as no further information has been provided.

This could actually be the start of a whole new chapter in this book. We”; just have to wait and see what will happen in the near future.

What is Microsoft planning with this move?

Needless to say that this latest turn of events has iPhone users, that still rely on Windows as an OS, more than worried.

And, of course, as soon as this happened, as with human nature, everyone started speculating about what this could actually mean.

Some people actually believe that Apple and Microsoft got into such a big fight that they are past reconciliation, and are starting to sever all ties between them.

We can assure you that this is not the case, at least for the time being. What we cant do, is tell you for sure why this decision was made.

Through various forums and social media platforms, another theory has risen, and that is the fact that iTunes has been removed only because Apple Music might be coming to the Microsoft Store.

This could actually mean a lot for the Windows/Mac users out there, as it coincides with the release of Windows 11, thus doubling the already hard-to-contain excitement.

Other people even went so far as to believe that Apple might be working on a brand new, never-before-seen application for streaming music.

But there is no way of knowing a hundred percent until new information is provided, whether as official news or, why not, as a leak.

We will keep our eyes and ears on this matter and keep you updated as soon as we learn new details.
