Steve Jobs has confirmed Apple’s commitment to a single US$0.99 (€0.82) price point for tracks bought from their iTunes music store. Apple have been vehement in stating their commitment to 99c, and have reiterated it several times over the past month, despite some iTunes album prices climbing.
Labels have been gradually increasing wholesale prices, but Apple have not passed these cost onto their single-buying customers … yet.
At the recent D: All Things Digital conference in San Diego, Jobs stated: “We don’t think the consumer wants to pay more than 99 cents.” He’s not wrong.
Apple have also released version 4.6 of the iTunes application, adding support for AirTunes and AirPort Express, so that users can stream music wirelessly around the home. The new version is also features a number of other “minor enhancements – we’re downloading a copy now and if there are any surprises in it, we’ll let you know.
