Apple’s rumored, upcoming overhaul of iTunes is said to include new features for sharing music, according to a new report. Citing people with direct knowledge of the matter, Bloomberg says the update will integrate more tightly with iCloud, making it easier to manage media and apps across devices, and is also intended to improve how people manage all their files. Improvements to media discovery—including sharing—are said to be included, highlighted by a feature that would allow a user to listen to a song sent to them from a friend for free. Apple has already previewed some of its moves with the redesigned iTunes Store in iOS 6 and with its new Podcasts app that removes podcasts from the store in favor of giving them their own standalone application.
