What no one has mentioned is how it will connect with devices... The preview pages don't show any screens with a device connected.

Why do people WANT iTunes updates? All they do is drop support for older Macs.
because some people dont run around with 5 year old hardware

change is good, something new to play around with. looking forward to the new UI

What "revolutionary" things have Apple added to iTunes? It's had the same basic features since the start. All they did was change the layout, first for the better, then with no big difference, and then for the worse in version 10. All they really added was Genius (nice but nothing revolutionary) and Ping (piece of @#$%ing @#$%).

Excuse me for not buying a new computer every 5 years even though my old one works perfectly... Still, even if you have new hardware, the newer versions just use up more computer resources and force you to keep updating.

Given that the Apple website still says "Coming in November" and there is little more than a week remaining of the month, I'd say this is a reasonable bet.

I hope this is a better written piece of software, instead of the slow, god-awful piece of bloatware iTunes has become.

I'm more excited for this than I was for any hardware updates this year. I spend hours a day using iTunes. Where as the thrill of using a new iDevice quickly disappears when you realise it operates exactly the same as the old one .

Bring on iTunes 11!

Yes. It is about time. I have always been frustrated how I will be listening to a playlist, want to listen to another song for a just moment, but it loses my place in the playlist.

This and support for browsing your iCloud library will be great.

The iTunes Store was pretty revolutionary.

You really need a new mac, iTunes 10.7 isn't even compatible with 10.5.8 and you can't upgrade to SL because your mac is so old
Maybe think before you post?

You don't need a retina MacBook Pro! Most likely minimum 10.6.8 you idiot!

Use Rdio, Spotify and iCloud. iTunes? Haven't used it since the day iOS 5 launched.

The apple preview says same version everywhere! Finally won't be stuck with Belgium Itunes, you have no idea how bad it is to be subject to Belgian itunes charts for everything, suggestions based on belgian popular products when you are English etc.. Complete insult and why i dont use itunes but now as they are finally sorting this out, good times coming!! Been waiting a looong time apple as have many, dont force products based on geo, its 2012, get with the project ! But thanks for having addressed, appreciated.

Hoping for architecture change

Apple's points about iTunes 11 focussed on UI, not too much on functionality. I'm hoping iTunes 11 is re-architected to be more modular. It has become a monolithic system and needs refactoring.

One of most obvious problems is information about movies, books, music, etc are quite different. Books were kludged into the file structure for iTunes, for example. In addition, it's never been clear how the the metadata fields for songs and albums, and books are interpreted.

Looking for iTunes 11 to satisfy my curiosity.

Based on iTunes 11 being demoed at the iPhone conference it looks like a dream compared to the current iTunes which is old and cumbersome to use

Maybe Apple will finally revamp iTunes.
Maybe it will look and work properly and snappy on a Windows PC. I've installed this POS on many Windows PCs, fast and slow, and I have never liked the outcome. I know Apple hates Windows users but your not too good to take our money. How about making a decent product. If you don't, someone else will.

The PC version of iTunes is a Dawg. Come on Apple.

PS. Just make iTunes a website instead of an AP(e) and it won't rape my PC every time I install it.

Apple is so great at so many things, it just boggles the mind that they put their name on this monstrosity.

I personally think Apple's mapping solution is great too, I haven't run into any issues using it myself.
