You Can Now Download iTunes From the Windows 10 App Store

By Tom Pritchard on at

It's been nearly a year since it was announced that Apple was bringing iTunes to the Windows 10 App store, but today it's finally arrived.

The app itself is almost identical to the desktop version you can download from Apple's website, letting you browse the iTunes store, listen to Apple Music, manage your iOS devices, and so on. Obviously the App Store was removed last September, and it's not making any sort of grand comeback here.

The only real upside to grabbing the app store version of iTunes is that it means the software will function with Windows 10's upcoming S Mode, which stops you installing software from third party sources - Apple included. For regular Windows 10 users it also makes it easier to manage any updates that pop up, seeing as how the desktop software would be a bit of a bastard when it came to installing the damn things.

If you  want the app store version of iTunes, you can head over to the Microsoft Store and install it right now. Be warned, though, if you have the desktop version already Windows 10 will remove it as part of the installation process.
