The future of the entertainment industry lingers on the cloud. Apple also knows that. Sources close to the Cupertino giant hint that the company is planning to overhaul its iTunes software to integrate more cloud-based services and new music sharing features.
iTunes has been one of the major elements of Apple’s iOS content ecosystem. As the amount of available content increases with time, the company thinks it is necessary to bring changes to the way people manage their files.
So major changes will be brought to how people find their favorite content and access them from a number of iOS devices.
A sharing feature, which lets users to share a song that they have bought free to others, is also in consideration.
There could also be an improvement in the richness of the content iTunes offers. Apple is reportedly planning to include more multimedia content in iTunes by requesting more photos and music videos from artists.
While ways of sharing, accessing change along with the richness of the content, many of the present features of the software will become independent apps just like the recent birth of the Podcasting app, claim sources.
However, the overhaul will not take long to complete as the revamped version of the iTunes is expected to be out by the end of this year.
