Back in May, Microsoft announced it was working with Apple to bring iTunes to the Microsoft Store (previously known as the Windows Store). There was no specific timetable given, but the company said it would land sometime this year. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this is happening anymore as a statement given to ZDNet by Apple states the companies need more time to perfect the experience.

“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,” said an Apple spokesperson via an emailed statement.

Basically, this means we likely won’t see iTunes land in the Microsoft Store until some time next year. It’s a shame since all Windows 10 S users will need to wait until 2018 to enjoy Apple Music on their machine. ZDNet‘s Mary Jo Foley says Apple has likely not given up on iTunes for the Store, but we still have a wait ahead of us.
