Apple May Extend iTunes Song Sample Length on Wednesday

The list of announcements rumored for Apple’s September 1 media event continues to grow, and the latest claims iTunes Store shoppers will finally get to hear longer song samples ahead of their purchases. The news comes from unnamed sources that apparently are privy to the information, according to CNET.

iTunes Song samples are limited to 30 seconds, which has drawn complaints from users claiming the clips aren’t long enough to decide whether or not they like a song.

CNET’s anonymous sources also claimed Apple will use a substantial portion of its media event to highlight changes to music discovery tools at the iTunes Store.

Apple will be hosting a media event at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 1. The company is expected to introduce new iPod models, including an iPod touch with a FaceTime-compatible camera.
