Apple has promised a big announcement for iTunes today, but what could it be? iOS 4.2 would be an obvious answer, but the new mobile OS is not going to change iTunes is it? There are a number of other services that could, which we recently discussed, but there could be a little surprise, and that is The Beatles.
We all know how Steve Jobs has been trying for years to get the back catalog of the Fab Four, and it looks as though all that persistence could have finally paid off. We are still uncertain if this is fact or not, but WSJ reports that their sources have almost but confirmed this.
Beatles songs do not appear on any legal download service, so is an untapped income for the EMI Group Ltd., The Michael Jackson Foundation and surviving members of the group. If this does happen today, then we could see Apple servers go into meltdown.
The Beatles is still a huge deal in the music industry, and iOS users will love to download some of their favorites songs onto their iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Do you think that this is the big iTunes announcement, or is there something bigger about to happen? Get more details on the times of this announcement.
