Apple Releases Music, TV, And Devices Apps On Windows Platform
February 9, 2024 / By Zunair Tahir / Tech News
The latest iterations of Apple’s TV, Music, and Devices apps now available for Windows users. These applications may now be downloaded on x86 Windows 10 and 11 devices.
Apple had already made Music, TV, and Devices available on Windows in a “preview” version. Additionally, these programs were exclusive to Windows 11 and not Windows 10.
The applications are no longer in their preview phase and may be downloaded on both operating system versions as of the most recent release.
iTunes will eventually be replaced by devices, TV, and music. iTunes is still in operation. Even though iTunes was phased out by Apple on the Mac with macOS Catalina, it has managed to survive on Windows and get regular upgrades.
But in addition to being clumsy and obviously outdated, the software lacks several contemporary functions. The new applications fill that need.
For example, the Music app offers all the capabilities found on Apple’s own platforms, including high-resolution and lossless music—something iTunes does not provide.
With the TV app, you can watch video via Apple TV+ in up to 4K HDR and view your iTunes purchases. Your iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices are updated, backed up, and synchronized using the Devices app.
It’s unclear how long Apple plans to keep iTunes for Windows updated. At this point, it’s probably not long for this world, though it could persist for Windows versions older than 10.
