    With Apple said to be launching its revamped iTunes 11 "as soon as" today as the company rushes to meet its already-postponed goal of a November release, 9to5Mac reports that AppleCare support representatives are currently being seeded with prerelease versions of the new software.
    The new iTunes brings a substantial overhaul, including a revamped player, a redesigned store based on the layout currently seen in on iOS devices, and new iCloud features for streaming media and syncing progress.

    "Coming in December"

    Good. They need someone to test their products before they're released.

    It has to come out today or tomorrow, or they are "lying"

    That said, I would rather have a polished version of iTunes, and not have it come with the bloat and slowness that the current iTunes has.

    Being a programmer, I hate seeing software getting rushed out. But I am excited for the new iTunes! Hoping all the major bugs have gotten squashed.

    Seeing as how they haven't postponed it again already, I'd imagine it's pretty much good to go. There are only two days left in November anyway, including today.

    On my Windows 7 PC, it take about 30 seconds for iTunes to load. Has to be one of the worse pieces of software Apple has ever built. I'm crossing my fingers on this "overhaul".

    so its coming today, tomorrow, or getting delayed to december? if apple care people got it today doesnt it usually take at least a week or two for the public to get it to make sure there are no problems?!

    So in other words, we're not getting it today.

  12. macrumors 65816


    Well, duuuuuh... I would hope that customer support representatives get it first... and not just 5 minutes before the public...

    gimme gimme gimme

    It will be released tomorrow. I called Apple and they told be that.

    I'm assuming this loading speed has something to do with the whole "Windows 7 PC" thing. My Mac loads iTunes just fine.
  17. macrumors 65816

    If AppleCare is just getting it then they have to be trained, which means there is no way it's being released today.
  18. macrumors 6502


    in other words. Not out today.
  19. macrumors 603

    No, Apple doesn't know how to make good PC software. Or they just don't care.
  20. macrumors 6502

    Yeah, on my Mac, load time is fine. I have 2 Window machines at home and the load times on each for iTunes is horrible.

    Takes me all of 5 seconds in bootcamp. Maybe its time to run a TRIM check on your HDD and see if its dying?
  22. macrumors 65816


    iTunes is bloatware on Windows. It's fine on OS X (but the UI is clunky). That's also been my experience with the software.
  23. macrumors 6502

    3 seconds on mine, well I have an SSD.
  24. macrumors 6502

    Exactly! Been like this forever on PCs.
  25. macrumors regular

    Same. My Mac loads iTunes from fresh in the first bounce of the dock icon, so about a second.
