ITunes is a media management software by Apple that is available for Windows and Macintosh computer systems. It is mostly used by people who have purchased an iPod, iPhone or iPad although that is not a requirement to install and use iTunes.
I have received two requests in the past week asking me how to download iTunes for Windows. The short answer is that you can download iTunes for Windows at the Apple website.
Here is what you need to know. Itunes is offered as a 32-bit and 64-bit application for Windows 7, Windows Vista and as a 32-bit application for Windows XP. The installer makes no difference between the different Windows operating system though, only 32-bit and 64-bit editions are separately available.
The easiest way to download iTunes is at the official Apple website which is accessible by following this link.
The downloads are listed on the left side. Just select Tunes 9.1.1 for Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 or iTunes 9.1.1 for Windows (64-bit) and click the download link to start the download. It is not necessary to enter an email address into the form below, the download will start regardless of that. The versions may differ as iTunes is updated regularly by Apple.
32-bit Windows users can also download an iTunes offline installer directly from the Apple servers.
Update: New versions of iTunes for all supported operating systems have been released by Apple. The program is still limited to Windows and Mac computer systems. The Apple website tries to automatically match the correct version of the application to the operating system you are using. Make sure you check the version that it is offering to you on the Download iTunes page to make sure it is indeed the correct one.
You do not have to enter your email address on the page to receive offers by Apple before the download, just click on the download now button to start it right away without giving away the information.
