There have been rumors going around that Apple is preparing to give iTunes the first major overhaul in 10 years, and now Bloomberg is joining in on the reports. The makeover would come in iTunes 11 and be closely integrated with iCloud and maybe social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
Apple plans an overhaul of iTunes that would mark one of the largest changes to the world’s biggest music store since its 2003 debut, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter.
Apple will unveil the changes by year’s end, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. The company will more closely integrate its iCloud file-store service with iTunes so users can more seamlessly access and manage their music, videos and downloaded software apps across different Apple gadgets, the people said. Apple also plans new features for sharing music, the people said.
