iTunes overhaul pushed back to November

iTunes overhaul pushed back to November

Last month, we heard that Apple was planning to roll out a pretty big update for iTunes. That update was scheduled to land sometime this month, but with October ending tomorrow, it's become pretty clear that the iTunes refresh probably won't make it out the door before November arrives. Sure enough, Apple confirmed today that it has delayed this major iTunes update, and now the company is saying that it should be available before the end of next month.

Xbox Music vs Spotify vs iTunes Match vs Google Music

Xbox Music vs Spotify vs iTunes Match vs Google Music

If you're thinking about working with Xbox Music in the very near future, the first thing you should be thinking about is how it measures up to the competition. With Microsoft's first iteration of Xbox Music here right before Windows 8 is released, you'll need Windows 8, an Xbox 360, or a Windows Phone 8 device to use it. Spotify is a service that works on all of these platforms as well as Apple's devices and Google's Android, too. The third warrior in iTunes Match works on Apple products and connects directly with iTunes.

Apple axes in-app ads for non-iTunes stores

There's a clause in the iOS developer guidelines listing that has reportedly been added on the 12th of September that may well have far-reaching effects on the way game and app creators find cash outside the iTunes app store. This note says that “Apps that display Apps other than your own for purchase or promotion in a manner similar to or confusing with the App Store will be rejected.” Bad news for those that come in to the iTunes app store with a free offering hoping to spur purchases for themselves in stores outside Apple's own.

Sky and Warner Bros. ink exclusive movie deal: iTunes, Netflix left out in cold

Movie lovers in the UK may struggle to find their title of choice to watch in the coming months, with news that Sky and Warner Bros. have signed an exclusive deal for new and back-catalog titles. The agreement covers both Sky's on-demand and subscription Sky Movies services, and will see new Warner Bros. releases hit the broadcaster roughly six months after they finish showing in theaters.

iPhone 5 headphones redesign prepare Apple for inevitable iTunes event

iPhone 5 headphones redesign prepare Apple for inevitable iTunes event

This month there's been so many tips about an event for the new iPhone 5 (or whatever you want to call it) that it seems like a sure shot - but now with a new pair of Apple earbuds leaking out before the drop, a second event seems all the more likely. Last month a couple of tips and suggestions lead the tech news circuit to believe that an October music-themed event was in the mix in addition to this September 12th offering of the iPhone 5, though neither event has been confirmed by Apple in the least. The newest "leak" of information from Apple (supposedly, of course), comes in the form of a redesigned set of earbuds made for the brand new Apple mobile lineup - could it be a sign?
