Apple Integrates iCloud with iTunes12 Sep, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Apple is touting seamless integration of its iCloud movie and music service in its latest version of iTunes, coming in October.
The iCloud service allows owners of iTunes content to access to what they own on any Apple device, and covers both new purchases and previously purchased content. The service remembers where in a show users stopped watching, and allows them to access that point regardless of what device they’re using.
Content from every major studio, with the exception of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, is available with the service.
“We created iTunes because we love music and we’re going back to our roots with an incredibly clean design that keeps your music at the forefront,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s SVP of Internet software and services. “The new iTunes works seamlessly with iCloud, always keeping your entire library at your fingertips, and we’re adding great new features that make listening to your music more fun.”
The new iTunes will feature a full-window interface, an expandable album view and a new search feature.
