Apple Finally Launches iTunes in Microsoft Store for Windows 10

By April 27th, 2018 AT 11:52 AM

Apple has finally launched the standalone iTunes application in the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. iTunes has been searched by a lot of people in the Microsoft Store, but the app is made available today for the users. This will be a lot more helpful because Microsoft is allowing users to install only the apps from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10 S Mode and the availability of iTunes will boost Microsoft efforts of making Windows 10 S Mode mainstream. For those who’re interested, the Apple iTunes is already available for download in the Microsoft Store.


To recall, at the Microsoft Build Conference last year, the Redmond-based company announced that iTunes would be made available in Microsoft Store by the end of 2017, but it took four months more than the expected time. At the end of 2017, Apple confirmed that it would not release iTunes app in the Microsoft Store in 2017. So if you install the iTunes app from the Microsoft Store now, the updates will be handled through the Microsoft Store updater and not through Apple.

To install iTunes from Microsoft Store, you’ll be required to have either an x86 or x64 Windows 10 machine. The app interface is also pretty much same as the other versions, so basically, only the installation procedure is changed and nothing else. “iTunes is the easiest way to enjoy your favourite music, movies, TV shows, and more on your PC. iTunes is also home to Apple Music, where you can listen to millions of songs and your entire music library, online or off – all ad-free. Also, get new music first, radio in every music genre, handpicked playlists, and Beats 1 live or on demand,” states the app description on Windows Store.

If you’re already using the iTunes app on your Windows 10 machine and if you download the app from the Microsoft Store, the standard version will be replaced.

With the Windows 10 S Mode, Microsoft is looking to provide more security, and as a step towards the same, users will not be able to install apps from third-party sources, only the Microsoft verified ones could be installed from the Microsoft Store. The Windows 10 S Mode is aimed at schools, and the company is also pushing developers to release their apps on the Microsoft Store.
