According to some sources of 9to5Mac’s, Apple has begun seeding a version of iTunes, version 11, internally. This new version of iTunes is suppose to come with some major “under-the-cover” enhancements, like better iCloud support and even support for Apple’s next version of their mobile operating system, iOS 6. While not much is really known about iTunes 11 or iOS 6, we’re hearing that iTunes will have a dedicated section for iCloud, giving users the ability to manage their iCloud service right from within iTunes.

9to5mac,
also points out, that it is entirely possibly that Apple could release another version of iTunes 10 (version x) before we see iTunes 11. They were also reassured that a new look or “redesign” is also in the works, which I believe we’ll see at WWDC in June.

We may also see the search functionality within iTunes/App Store drastically improved as well. Since Apple purchased “Chomp,” a company who’s developed a clean and easy way to search for apps back in February, two of the top level executives, CEO Ben Keighran and CTO Cathy Edwards, have already begun working at Apple, presumably within the iTunes team.

We still have a few months till we get closer to WWDC, I’m sure we’ll hear more on this topic soon. Stay tuned.
