iTunes, Apple's software for downloading, purchasing, and managing content on iOS devices and playing Apple content on Macs and PCs, is now available for download through Microsoft's Windows 10 Store.

Microsoft first announced plans to bring the iTunes app to the Windows 10 Store in May 2017, and said at the time that the app would be available by the end of 2017. In December, though, an Apple spokesperson said that the two companies would not hit that deadline.

"We have been working with Microsoft to deliver the full iTunes experience to our customers and we need a little more time to get it right," Apple said.

iTunes has been available on the Windows platform for many years as a standalone download for most Windows users, but its addition to the Windows Store will make it easier for Windows users to find the software. Windows 10 S users have not been able to download the iTunes software as the mode only supports software downloaded from the Microsoft Store, so this will be a welcome addition for those Microsoft customers.

The addition of iTunes to the Windows Store is a win for Microsoft, as iTunes is reportedly one of the apps that Windows users search for most often.

With such a buggy and messy Software you need time to make it right on the Mac aswell... Try investing on that a little bit more okay?

Just installed it. Sadly, it looks like the same as before - no UI changes. It's just the existing version packaged for the Microsoft Store.

It seems like the same version as before to me - maybe they bundled some of the supporting services (Quicktime, USB drivers, update utility, etc.) into one program instead of installing them all as services, but it runs just as poorly as ever here.
FWIW, iTunes hasn't had anything to do with QuickTime since version 10.4 in 2011.
