Keep in mind that this is not a regular update. Also keep in mind it was delayed a full month.

This update, and the circumstances surrounding it, are not like most updates.

Given how much of the app they showed at the September event, and how stable it all was, I'd say the delay was due to the store makeover.

Not necessarily anything unannounced. This is the same company that needs to take its site down for hours to update it.

I mean Apple always has trouble with web properties. If the company takes its site down for hours just to update the product line-up then it wouldn't surprise me that a major redesign of such a well used site/webapp as iTunes might pose difficulties.

I highly doubt Apple needs to take the store down to update product pages. You don't see Amazon going down before every new product is put in the store.

It creates buzz and anticipation.

That was different though because it was released the same day as a Keynote.

I would have thought that too, but I've read numerous accounts over the years from employees who say it is needed downtime and not hype. I mean they are preventing sales by doing it, and sometimes they do it for very minor updates.

Apple's not going to mess with any goodwill by getting people hyped about a mystery update and then delivering…. http://edition.cnn.com/2010/TECH/02/...ex.html?hpt=T2

They don't need to take it down for anything, they choose to take the shop down. There's been plenty of updates to the store without it being taken offline, but when there's something interesting, they like the hype.

I would be surprised if that were the case. They could probably overhaul the backend to avoid the downtime but where would the fun be in that.
