According to a recent report by Bloomberg, Apple is working on a major new version of iTunes, which is designed to increase the amount of content available through the iTunes store and also make it easier for users to discover new content.
The new iTunes will apparently make it easier for users to share song’s with their friends, and this service may let their friends listen to the song for free, Apple have apparently been in discussions with the record labels regarding this feature.
One of the main ways Apple will attempt to improve discovery is by making it easier for people to share songs, a popular feature of Spotify Ltd.’s music-subscription service. Apple has been negotiating with major record labels for rights that would let a user listen to a song sent to them from a friend for free, one person said.
Apple are expected to launch their new iTunes before the end of the year, no specific date has been given, but we wonder if it will arrive at the same time as iOS 6 which is due in the fall.
