Apple Defers iTunes Overhaul to November

Apple Defers iTunes Overhaul to November


Following the news of the departures of Apple top executives, Scott Forstall and John Browett, Apple has just announced that it will be pushing back the release of their eagerly-anticipated major iTunes refresh back a month to November.

According to a statement from Apple, the Cupertino firm is taking a little longer than expected because they want to get things right the first time. Whether this has to do anything with the recent uproar over the new Maps app found in iOS 6 is hard to say, but it is clear that Apple wants to avoid history from repeating itself. Furthermore, iTunes is an integral application in Apple's ecosystem.

iTunes is in need of a major needed overhaul as it has become clumsy and bloated over the years. The new iTunes is widely expected to include better integration with iCloud, a sleeker and easier to use interface and enhanced performance.
