iTunes 9 to Include Blu-ray Support and iPhone App Organization?

Boy Genius Report has received a tip from a "pretty reliable source" claiming to have knowledge of several new features to be included in iTunes 9. The rumored features include support for Blu-ray media and visual organization of iPhone and iPod touch applications within iTunes, as well as some form of social networking/media integration.

One of the new additions to iTunes is said to include Blu-ray support which lines up nicely with a recent Apple Insider report about Apple integrating Blu-ray into their new iMac line-up. Something else that will most likely make a bunch of people happy is that we've been told iTunes 9 will finally include the ability to visually organize and arrange your iPhone and iPod touch applications. Something that wasn't so clearly described was some kind of Twitter/Facebook/Last.fm integration. Maybe broadcasting what song youre playing to your friends?

While no timeframe for a launch of iTunes 9 was suggested by the source, Apple has in recent years held special media events to update its iPod line and iTunes each September, so it is reasonable to speculate that iTunes 9 could make an appearance within the next month or two.
