iTunes won't be in Microsoft store this year as promised

Apple

iTunes won't be available in the Microsoft store this year, despite a previous announcement that it would, ZDNet reports. An Apple spokesperson confirmed that it needs "a little more time" to get the iTunes integration onto Microsoft products right.

Why it matters: Microsoft needs to get more apps in its store to lure users. It's especially important for users of the slimmed down Windows 10 S operating system because as Axios' Ina Fried has previously pointed out, "without a new version of iTunes, there would be no (authorized) way to directly connect an iPhone to such devices."
