iTunes 11 to feature iOS 6 support, iCloud integration?

Apple has started to internally seed versions of iTunes 11, according to a new report. Citing anonymous sources, 9to5Mac reports that current development is focused on under-the-hood changes, but that new interface elements and features are likely being developed, possibly by a separate group. Among the new features mentioned for the software are support for iOS 6 devices and a dedicated iCloud settings panel with controls for iTunes Match, iTunes in the Cloud, iCloud iOS device backups, and more, all consolidated in a single spot. In addition, the report claims that a full iTunes/App Store revamp is underway with a launch expected sometime in the summer or fall, and that another 10.x point update is possible for initial iOS 6 compatibility, with one source calling that “more likely” than a simultaneous rollout of iTunes 11.

iOS needs more than “under the hood” development. The look and feel is a little long in the tooth. The system of swiping from one page of apps to the next is cumbersome, especially given how many apps users have (between large on-device storage capacity and the success of the App Store). And it’s way past time iOS gave the Lock Screen more functionality, along the lines of the Symbian 60 “Active Standby.” Another welcome update would be some implementation of the Swype [www DOT swipe DOT com] system for text input.
