In 2001, Steve jobs unveiled iTunes. This app was really popular at the time – largely thanks to the iPod line. But it’s time to move forward – the company is going to abandon iTunes, replacing it with multiple applications: “Apple Music”, “Books” and “Podcasts.” All these changes Apple will announce at the developer conference WWDC 2019.

Replacement iTunes

In fact, iTunes will assume the new app “Apple Music”. Ordinary users should not worry — the program will save many basic functions of mediacompany, including syncing with iOS devices, restoring, backup, and tools for organizing your library.

Also in macOS will be a separate app for watching movies, listening to podcasts and reading books. They will become an integral part of the system, which was once the iTunes.

That life cycle iTunes came to an end, and you can see the pages in social networks. It is noteworthy that the Corporation did not wait for the conference and completely cleared page iTunes Facebook and Instagram. In addition, the domain names are somehow connected with iTunes now redirect users to other pages — Apple TV and Apple Music.

The Windows version

It is unknown how Apple will go with the same application on Windows. It is not excluded that the company will present an updated tool for synchronization and backup, depriving users of multimedia functions.

Waiver of iTunes is long overdue — for that year, users criticized this app. A huge number of unnecessary features, low speed (especially on older computers), confusing interface.

However, it is worth to pay tribute to a legendary player lasted 18 years, becoming for many a kind of guide to the world of Apple.
