Apple is preparing to build the "next generation of media apps for Windows"

Apple is looking for software engineers to help the company build media apps for Windows. The iPhone maker revealed his plans in one job offer seen earlier this month Neowin, inviting potential candidates to join us and build the next generation of media apps for Windows & # 39 ;.

Apple maintains existing Windows apps such as iTunes and iCloud, but these are both old traditional desktop apps that show their age. Apple revealed earlier this year that it is splitting iTunes into three separate macOS apps: podcasts, TV, and music. None of these apps have arrived on Windows, so PC users only have iTunes. If you are an Apple Music or Apple TV Plus subscriber, you must now use the web versions instead of special apps on Windows 10.

Apple's job list states "experience with UWP is a big plus", indicating that the company is looking to build Universal Windows Platform (UWP) versions of its media apps for Windows 10. This could help Apple apps to both Windows 10 and Xbox One, which is especially important for Apple TV Plus because there is currently no way to view content from that service on the Xbox One.

It is not clear when these new media apps will arrive for Windows, but the fact that Apple is investing in Windows 10 is good news for owners of Surface or Windows tablet devices who will benefit from new touch-friendly apps for Apple's services.
