Apple would have started distributing a beta version of the eleventh version of its iTunes software to some beta testers. The next version should integrate a somewhat revised interface and the possibility of configuring iTunes Match, iTunes in the Cloud and iCloud backups of iOS devices. Its availability should coincide with the launch of iOS 6.
The site 9to5mac reveals reports that Apple is actively preparing for the next major update to its iTunes software. A test version of this eleventh version would have already been entrusted to a few privileged developers including the writing of 9to5mac. The source claims that the test version – which is in their possession – does not yet include visible changes. However, the American site adds that new features are expected regarding the user interface, "Apple is developing different parts of the software in separate groups, the new version will probably incorporate changes to the user interface", he says.
If the interface design is changed, new functionalities will also emerge. Indeed, we learn that the next version of iTunes will have new settings to configure iTunes Match, iTunes in the Cloud and iCloud backups of devices on iOS.
Finally, this new version of iTunes should probably coincide with the arrival of the next major iOS update (iOS 6, dj!) Which we should hear about during the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) probably expected during the month of June. A calendar which is therefore being set up for a launch of the next version of the iPhone which should therefore occur in the fall.
We discuss it on the forum.
