Apple will no longer support the iTunes Store on Windows XP/Vista and Apple TV first generation
Apple has posted a new support document that explains that, starting from the 25th of may, ending support for the iTunes Store on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Apple TV first generation.
Apple explains that on may 25 will be introduced for new security updates that will prevent the old PC with Windows XP or Windows Vista to access the iTunes Store. The reason is clear: Windows XP and Windows Vista are no longer supported by Microsoft and therefore is not guaranteed the safety of the users. In addition, also the latest version of iTunes is not available for these two operating systems.
In any case, Apple explains that users will still be able to use iTunes on their PC, but without any support from Apple, and without the possibility to access the iTunes Store to make new purchases or re-download items already purchased in the past.
Ever since 25 may, the iTunes Store will not be accessible even on the Apple TV first-generation. Also in this case, the choice was made for reasons of safety, since this model was declared obsolete in 2015.
