Tom Neumayr, an Apple spokesperson has sent a statement to AllThingsD explaining that the new iTunes, which was first unveiled at Apple’s September Media Event has been delayed until the end of November.
As you may remember iTunes 11 was originally set to ready at the end of October so that’s quite a long time away, Neumayr did explain the reason for this in his full statement which states:
“The new iTunes is taking longer than expected and we wanted to take a little extra time to get it right. We look forward to releasing this new version of iTunes with its dramatically simpler and cleaner interface, and seamless integration with iCloud before the end of November.”
The new iTunes is set to include a new UI with better iCloud integration amongst other new features which were defiantly needed, this could however be, as suggested by AllThingsD, due to Apples latest executive shuffle which seen two quite important Apple employees leave the company.
