iTunes is coming to the Windows Store (and Windows 10 S is to blame)

This functionality assumes the user is running the latest versions of iOS and tvOS, however.

Apple promises fix for iOS 10’s iTunes backup security flaw

Security forensics company Elcomsoft revealed last week that encrypted iOS backups created in iTunes have been made far less secure with the recent release of iOS 10. While an unintentional flaw, the new password protected backups offer an "alternative password verification mechanism" that allows them to fall victim to brute force hacks much more quickly and easily than with previous iOS versions.

Apple will stop deleting your songs with iTunes update next week

Apple will stop deleting your songs with iTunes update next week

For the last week and a half, there have been a growing number of complaints from Apple Music and iTunes users about locally stored music being deleted in exchange for copies available in the cloud.
