  • Apple releases the first preview of its Music, TV, and Devices apps.
  • The apps are available for Windows 11, and you can get them through the Microsoft Store.
  • These applications offer the same experience and services as those available for macOS.

Apple has made available the first preview of its popular Music and TV apps and the Devices app for Windows 11. You can download these new apps from the Microsoft Store.

In the past, users with Apple devices had to use the legacy iTunes app for music and videos, and it also worked to back up and restore iOS devices. Windows users even had access to the Apple TV service, but only through the web version. And now, users have native applications similar to macOS users.

As expected, the Apple Music app offers access to millions of songs and your music library, and the design for this and the other apps are similar to the ones available for macOS.

The Apple TV app includes access to the Apple TV+ service, movies, and more. You can also buy or rent new and popular movies. Furthermore, you can access Paramount+, AMC+, Showtime, Starz, and other services through premium channels. The app’s design is similar to the macOS version, but you would access the different sections through a list to the side rather than tabs on the top.
