Like everyone, the Apple abandons operating systems that no longer receive support and series have Windows XP and Windows Vista.
The company will no longer allow computers running one of the two operating systems to connect to the iTunes Store from May 25 as newer platforms are required.
Apple explains that the security enhancements introduced for iTunes Store prevent older Windows computers from connecting and the only solution is to upgrade to a newer version.
Windows 7 or later is required so you can download content from the iTunes Store.
"You can continue to use previous versions of iTunes on your Windows computer without Apple support. However, you will not be able to make new purchases from the iTunes Store or repeat your previous purchases on this computer, "explains Apple.
On the other hand, not all are ready to make the transition with statistics to show that Windows XP is running at more than 4% of devices worldwide, though many of them are still used by companies and organizations.
In this case, switching to newer Windows is a more complex process that involves troubleshooting hardware and software compatibility problems and often leading to system upgrades that are quite expensive.
Apple has also announced that the same security changes will prevent the first-generation Apple TV from connecting with the iTunes Store. No updates will be released for this device as the company no longer bets on it.
