Apple launches redesigned iTunes 11

After almost a month long delay, Apple Thursday finally released iTunes 11, the latest version of its popular music software.

iTunes 11 was earlier planned for a release sometime last month. Just ahead of a self-imposed October deadline, an Apple spokesman told C|net the company "wanted to take a little extra time to get it right."

Users now get the chance to put that claim to the test. The software went out as a free update to current iTunes users on Mac and Windows this morning, and later as a download from Apple's iTunes site.

iTunes 11's headlining feature is a visual redesign that takes a cue or two from Apple's iOS software, with a focus on large album covers that can expand to show you songs -- both in your library, and other tracks from Apple's iTunes Music Store. It's a stark departure from Cover Flow, the slick, never-ending stream of album covers that could be flipped through one by one or at warp speed, and was once the hot new look.
