iTunes 11 Delayed, Will Arrive By End of November




An Apple spokesperson says iTunes 11 will be late and should ship by the end of November, according to a report from CNET. The software had been expected by the end of October.

This follows recent analysis of Apple's recent executive reorganization moves suggesting that the company had been burned by schedule-driven software releases recently, and could move to a more ship-when-it's-done strategy.
Quote:
"The new iTunes is taking longer than expected and we wanted to take a little extra time to get it right," Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr told CNET. "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."
iTunes 11 is expected to bring a complete overhaul to the user interface of the iTunes app itself and the iTunes Store.

Oh boy.....

Figured it would be dropping tomorrow - guess we'll just have to wait another month.

Better for it to be late than a buggy piece of crap.

Darn.

Oh well, I guess it's good that they're actually telling us instead of just not saying anything for a month until they finally release it. I can wait.

iTunes has never been slick and fast, and it never will. Apple does not know how to make software.

Dramatically simpler and cleaner interface. Just like iOS, that means less control for the end user. Enjoy, children.

I'd much rather wait and have it stable instead of it being released early and being unusable due to bugs.

No. No iOS 6.0.1, No iTunes 11, No new Safari for Windows. Why?

If they released it this month, everybody would just be bitching about how buggy and crappy it is.

Wonder if this has to do with the record labels backing out of the Pandora-like service?

Interesting that they haven't removed the reference to October from the site yet.

On another note, this doesn't exactly reflect the "ship on time vs. ship when ready" discussion we've been hearing over the past few days. Perhaps we are seeing a reversal back to "ship when ready".

This is not a big deal.

Why have people been asking in every thread about iTunes 11's release date? Has it become to the new iMac? Makes no sense (to me).
