Expect sleeker, faster iTunes 11 today as well

iTunes, Apple’s more than a decade old jukebox and digital content management software, could be updated today alongside the iPhone, iPod and possibly iMac and the AirPort wireless base station lineup.

This comes by way of search engine queries that also revealed the iPhone 5 name earlier today alongside LTE, new iPod touches and revamped nanos.

This information aligns nicely with a Bloomberg report earlier in the summer which claimed iTunes would receive a substantial makeover by year’s end…

9to5Mac editor Seth Weintraub has some interesting intelligence on iTunes 11:

From high-level AppleCare employees, currently training for iTunes 11, we’ve heard the new digital player has been re-designed from the ground up and is much sleeker and faster.

The upcoming update may also explain the wonkiness of the App Store over the past week or so.

It is a high time that Apple reboots the sluggish resource hog that is iTunes, wouldn’t you agree?
