iTunes 11 has been delayed from the end of October to the end of November, reports CNET.
Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr told the site that "The new iTunes is taking longer than expected and we wanted to take a little extra time to get it right. We look forward to releasing this new version of iTunes with its dramatically simpler and cleaner interface, and seamless integration with iCloud before the end of November."

The software upgrade completely redesigns the user interface to more closely resemble iOS. The iCloud takes center stage, and enables users to stop songs or movies on one device and pick up where they left off on another.
Users can now also download songs from their library to the iCloud to gain access to them on other devices. iTunes 11 integrates a new preview history feature, which lists previously sampled songs for future use. The software will now suggest new artists and songs based on the user's library.
CNET notes that "the new software's headlining feature is a visual redesign...with a focus on album covers that can expand out to show you songs-both in your library, and other tracks from Apple's iTunes Music Store."
In other recent Apple News, iPhone software development head Scott Forestall has been reportedly fired from the Cupiterno tech giant due to his refusal to sign an official letter of apology for the failure of Apple's Map App. USA Today notes that Forstall will "remain an advisor to [CEO Tim] Cook until next year."
