Apple will kill iTunes – 9to5Mac
One after another, leaks appear on the Web about the features of macOS 10.15, which will be presented at the Apple WWDC developer conference starting on June 3.
On the eve of the MacRumors edition suggested that the new OS for Apple computers will be called Mammoth. Now 9to5Mac publishes screenshots confirming that Apple will split iTunes into separate applications – for music, video content and podcasts.
Continuity in design is obvious: new applications are similar to iTunes.
The Music app will serve to listen to songs from Apple Music and manage the user's personal music collection. It will retain the ability to sync with your iPhone and iPod.
New TV application contains a toolbar to switch between the sections "Watch Now", "Movies", "TV Shows" and "Library".
Screenshots of the Podcasts application have not been published.
The iTunes application was introduced in 2001. Apple positioned it as “the world's best media player.” Interestingly, this was not Apple’s internal development: the company bought and renamed the SoundJam MP media player.
