iTunes is a free application that organises and plays digital music and video on a Mac or PC. iTunes allows you to enjoy music and videos anywhere without inserting CDs or other devices with music on them. The basic difference between iTunes 32-bit and 64-bit is the compatibility with different versions of Windows. If your computer runs a 64-bit version of Windows, then iTunes will run faster and more efficiently than its 32-bit counterpart.
