For those who wish to install iTunes on their Windows computer, there is still the traditional route where you download the app from Apple’s website and install it from there. However these days we’re seeing companies shift from direct downloads to downloading from app stores, like the Mac App Store, Windows 10 Store, Steam, Battle.net Launcher, Origins, and so on.
Now there were plans to include iTunes in the Windows 10 Store, but unfortunately it won’t be coming by the end of 2017. This is according to a report from ZDNet in which an Apple spokesperson confirmed that the app would not be available via the Windows 10 Store this year, which is what Microsoft had initially stated during their Build conference earlier this year.
A statement made by an Apple spokesperson reads, “We have been working with Microsoft to deliver the full iTunes experience to our customers and we need a little more time to get it right.” It is unclear when the app will be available, but it looks like 2018 would be the earliest. However like we said, Windows users have the option of downloading iTunes directly from Apple’s website if they want to access it.
The only people that this inconveniences would be Windows 10 S users, in which the OS can only run apps that are downloaded directly from the Windows 10 Store.
