Windows Store will have iTunes by year-end
Microsoft Group on Thursday officially announced that iTunes will be coming to the Windows Store. During the Build event, the software giant said iTunes would be on the Windows Store by the end of the year, Apple said in a press release.
Until now, iTunes has been available as a separate download, not a part of the Windows Store. Its entrance into Microsoft’s application store will ensure that iTunes will work with Windows 10 S devices coming to market this year.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 S is a stripped-down version of Windows that will only be able to run Windows Store titles, reducing security risks and overhead.
Beyond Apple, Microsoft also announced that streaming music service Spotify will be on the Windows Store. In addition, three popular Linux distributions — Ubuntu, SUSE and Fedora— will be available to download.
