Apple Shutters iTunes, Replacing it with a Trio of New Apps
Steve Jobs introduced iTunes just over eighteen years ago. It first debuted at the Macworld 2001 Expo, beginning a “music revolution.” But, over time, it’s become a bloated, unnavigable mess. Fortunately, Bloomberg reports it’s coming to an end:
“iTunes has been the way Apple users listen to music, watch movies and TV shows, hear podcasts, and manage their devices for almost two decades. This year, Apple is finally ready to move into a new era. The company is launching a trio of new apps for the Mac – Music, TV, and Podcasts – to replace iTunes. That matches Apple’s media app strategy on iPhones and iPads. Without iTunes, customers can manage their Apple gadgets through the Music app. “
The replacements are also in-place and ready to go out to the public: Music, TV, and Podcasts.
