iTunes Remote lives on with iPhone X update

Apple today released an update to iTunes Remote, it’s iOS app for remotely controlling music playback from the iTunes app running on a Mac or Windows PC. iTunes Remote 4.4 includes compatibility with the iPhone X along with stability and performance improvements and an all new design on both the iPhone and iPad platforms. The app was last updated in early 2017, and with Apple having split off Apple TV control into a standalone Apple TV Remote app shortly before that, it was unclear whether the iTunes-focused version would continue to exist, and even less certain with the recent rollout of AirPlay 2 support now providing the multi-speaker playback capabilities that were previously the exclusive domain of iTunes. The latest update suggests that Apple intends to continue supporting iTunes Remote for the foreseeable future.
