The first version of iTunes debuted January 8, 2001 at Macworld 2001 in San Francisco in company with iDVD and equipped with CD-RW drives “powermachine”. A c program icon in the form of a disk and three music became an instant hit, although in the first week it was uploaded 275 000 copies, but “the best and most simple audio player in the world” definitely set a new benchmark of quality music players.
