Apple Roundup: Fixing Auto-Correct, iTunes Refresh
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The top Apple(AAPL) stories of the day include a re-imagining of iTunes, and indications that Apple is working to improve auto-correct on iOS devices.
The latter has to be good news for anyone who has ever had auto-correct on their iPhone or iPad not go your way, and let's face it, who hasn't?
Apple has filed three patents for approval with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Two of them deal directly with this, while the third may deal with it indirectly.
Apple is also working on overhauling iTunes, making several changes that would dramatically alter the way it works, Bloomberg said.
Citing people with direct knowledge of the matter, the report said Apple may integrate iCloud more closely with iTunes to make access easier between devices. Apple may also have new features for sharing music. The company reportedly is working with major record labels to allow users to listen to a song for free when a friend sends it along.
An Apple spokesman said the company doesn't comment on rumor or speculation.
Shares of Apple are lower in Thursday trading, off 0.99% to $568.84.
