Apple Delay iTunes Launch into November

October 31st, 2012

Well it is hardly surprising that iTunes 11 will now not launch in October as Apple had previously announced, as today is the last day and there is still no official news from Apple HQ.

AllThingsD have reported that the launch has been pushed back in Apple’s eagerness to “get it right”, clearly rather than have the terrible reviews that they received from launching the native maps application too early! I think that will act as a huge learning curve for Apple (if the company does need to learn anything at all), and all future releases will be thoroughly tested and vetted before a worldwide launch!

The delay in launching iTunes 11 may also be down to Scott Forstall leaving the company, or Scott Forstall leaving the company may be down to the delay in iTunes 11. Either way, Eddy Cue who is now heading up the role at Apple will have a very busy first few weeks in the job!

iTunes 11 is said to be a complete redesign and rebuild of the interface with many new and improved features including a better layout, more integration with iCloud services, a better mini player, full screen support and faster and better overall performance.

Don’t make us wait too long for the launch Apple…
