ITunes won't be in the Microsoft Store this year

16 December 2017

Apple Music is a core part of the iTunes app for Windows, and with Groove Music Pass set to completely shutdown later this year, launching the app before Christmas would possibly work out well for both the companies.

Earlier this year at Microsoft's Build conference, the company revealed it was working with Apple to get iTunes included in the Windows Store.

The report notes Apple has declined to share what specifically is holding the launch up, however at this stage it's clear that Apple won't be sticking to their promise of a end of 2017 launch.

Facebook researchers acknowledge social media can be bad for you
Facebook has admitted that social media can be bad for you , in a move described as a "pretty big deal" by one tech commentator. In the post, Facebook openly acknowledges that research shows that social media can have a damaging impact on people.

Presumably, we'll still see iTunes hit the Store at some point in 2018. Similar to Apple's implementation of iPad in the classroom, the strategy reduces exposure to security risks and streamlines installs in mass device management scenarios like educational deployments.

Aimed at the educational market and users who put a premium on security, Windows 10 S hardware runs a stripped down version of Windows that can only run software downloaded through the Microsoft Store.
