The Windows 10 S users among us (and you know who you are), will be glad to hear iTunes is finally available for download from the Windows Store.
The release makes it possible for Windows 10 S users, who cannot install applications obtained from third-party sources, to get their hands on Apple’s popular entertainment platform. This version of iTunes is exactly the same as the one available through Apple’s website.
Although iTunes has been available for the Windows platform since April 2003, the app wasn’t able to be installed on Windows 10 S. The new platform is designed to be a more efficient and more secure version of the Windows 10 operating system.
One of the security measures in 10 S is that users are only allowed to download and install apps from the Microsoft Store. (Much like iOS users are restricted to only installing apps from Apple’s App Store.
Apple had promised to release iTunes via the Microsoft Store by the end of 2017, but the company delayed it, saying that it needed “a little more time to get it right.”
iTunes for Windows is free, and is now available for Windows 10 devices via download from the Windows Store.
