Apple introduces new TV, Music and Devices Apps for Windows users

Farewell iTunes!

After a considerable wait, Apple has flipped the script for Windows users with three new apps – Apple TV, Apple Music, and Apple Devices along with a spiffed-up iCloud for Windows app.

This trio, according to MacRumors, is aimed at liberating Windows users from the clutches of iTunes. You better say goodbye to the old guard because with Apple TV, Apple Music, and Apple Devices, iTunes is now just a pit stop for podcasts and audiobooks on your Windows machine.

With the Apple Music app – not only can you tap into your iTunes library, but you can also browse and get your favourite tunes and albums. Apple TV will let you light up your movie nights while letting you access your iTunes collection of movies and TV shows, alongside a smorgasbord of subscription streaming content. The Apple Devices, meanwhile, will let PC owners backup and restore iPhones and iPads, as well as sync content to these devices.

A heads-up: Apple's latest Windows apps are exclusively compatible with traditional x86-based PCs running Windows 10 or Windows 11. At the moment, there's no indication of ARM64 versions tailored for Qualcomm-powered Windows devices.
