Apple Is About to Kill iTunes - And Here's the Proof

Apple Is About to Kill iTunes - And Here's the Proof

Apple's WWDC 2019 Developer Conference is about to kick off today in San Jose, California from 10.00 am PT (10.30 pm IST) onwards and as usual, the Cupertino giant's focus will be on its Software services as its hardware slowly becomes stagnant.

It is possible that iTunes does not fit the firm's business model any longer as a central hub for music and content purchases, and so, Apple reportedly will unveil changes to the platform which include slicing up iTunes into three different applications: Music, TV, and Podcasts. By 2013, more than 25 billion songs were sold and another 40 billion apps. It was earlier reported that Apple is planning to split iTunes into three apps for Mac - Music, Podcasts, and TV. "It brings thousands of the most creative and dedicated developers from around the world together with over a thousand Apple engineers to learn about our latest platform innovations and to connect as a community", said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. Here's a collection questions we hope Apple answers at this year's WWDC.

What do you think of Apple doing away with iTunes in favor of stand-alone apps?

It's expected that Apple will be replacing iTunes in the next major version of macOS. Apple expects to roll out apps that could run on every Apple device. You should be able to find WWDC in the Apple Events channel.

Did you know we have a YouTube Channel?

The fate of the iTunes store for Microsoft Windows is still unclear though.

If course, we'll have to wait until Monday to have this confirmed, but at this stage it seems highly likely that we can now wave goodbye to iTunes.

More recently, the application has been criticised for not being consumer-friendly, and Apple has struggled to compete with music streaming services such as Swedish company Spotify, which allow users to pay a subscription to play music without having to buy it.
