Apple announced back in September that it would be releasing the latest version of iTunes in October, iTunes 11 has now been delayed and it will be released some time in November.
Apple has spoken to AllThingsD to explain why iTunes 11 has been delayed a month, and they are using the extra time to make sure they get the new version of iTunes ‘right’ before it is released.
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
It will be interesting to see what iTunes 11 is like, and what now features it has and how deeper the integration with iCloud is when it is released next month.
