Home » News » iTunes arrives at the Windows Store this year

During the Build 2017 event, Microsoft announced among other things, the fact that iTunes is coming to the Windows Store.

Accessing Apple’s full iTunes experience

This means that anyone who purchases a Windows 10 S PC which is restricted to run apps from the Windows Store will still be able to have full access to Apple’s iTunes experience. On another thought, here is where you can find a few iTunes alternatives for Windows 10.

This announcement came just right after the news from the Windows 10 S launch saying that Spotify will be making its way to the Windows Store as well through the Desktop Bridge.

The company made sure it clarified the fact that the full iTunes experience will be available and this will also include Apple Music streaming and also iPhone syncing.

This might not seem a great deal for Microsoft followers but both Spotify and iTunes on the Windows Store will be very important. They will attract Microsoft’s target audience with Windows 10 S: Students.

 Microsoft’s heading to an all app store model for software distribution

iTunes has been available and actively developed for Windows since 2003 dating back all the way to the iPod days, but supporting the Windows Store is a huge step for Microsoft’s move to an all app store model for distributing software.

For Apple, it’s likely that the company would like to maintain full iPhone support on PCs and to ensure that its subscription music service is supported on new Windows systems.

Microsoft has also announced a brand new solution for PC users who are developing iOS apps. This is called Xamarin Live Player and the company’s IDE called Visual Studio is currently available for Mac.

Even if iTunes was the most important news here, we are also letting you know that Microsoft revealed that SAP’s Digital Boardroom (the web app), Ubuntu, SUSE Linux, and Fedora will be heading pretty soon to the Windows Store as well.
