The Apple Music and Apple TV applications offer access to the Apple Music and Apple TV+ subscription services as well as management of the music and video functions of iTunes, just like they do in macOS. The TV app is identical to the one on macOS. But instead of tabs at the top, you access the various parts through a list on the side.
According to Apple, the apps are just in the “preview” version at the moment. So not all functions will operate as planned.
On the other hand, you’ll use the Apple Devices app to make local device backups, make emergency software updates, sync local media, and all other actions you can carry out with an iOS device connected to your computer
Please take note that Windows 11 version 22621 or later is required for the three new Apple applications. If you want to download any of these apps, Apple warns that doing so will prohibit iTunes for Windows from opening, requiring you to use the new apps instead.
