Yes, iTunes is coming to Windows Store


Microsoft’s Windows 10 S is a rather interesting take on the platform, essentially being an entry-level Windows 10 variant. The biggest problem however, is the fact that Windows 10 S only allows apps from the Windows Store.

That immediately got us thinking about legacy apps that Microsoft needed on the Windows Store. And iTunes was one of the first examples we could think of, being essential for iPhone owners and multimedia consumers.

Now, Microsoft has announced that Apple’s program is indeed coming to the Windows Store by the end of the year.

“Windows users will get the complete iTunes experience, including Apple Music and the iTunes Store, as well as support for iPhone and other Apple devices on any Windows 10 or Windows 10 S PC,” the Redmond company wrote on its blog.

Microsoft also confirmed that Spotify was coming to the Windows Store.

In any event, Microsoft will need to accelerate its drive for legacy apps on the Windows Store, given the fact that it’s the only app avenue for Windows 10 S users. The company previously revealed tools to help developers port their Win32 apps to the Store.
