Apple could turn off iTunes forever in favor of new apps

Apple Reportedly Bringing Apple Music, Apple TV Apps to the Mac

Additionally, Apple will also include a redesigned Books app in the next version of macOS. In fact, the episode links use a podcast.apple.com URL instead of itunes.apple.com, which is further proof of the iTunes rumors.

All the new apps will be made using Marzipan which means they will behave and look the same as their iPad counterpart. (Personally, I still like it, but I recognize that I'm an outlier here.) Breaking it up would let Apple create more modern designs in less bloated apps without the decade-plus of baggage attached to the existing app.

Apple is reportedly preparing to break up iTunes, the brand's all-in-one media player, music, and podcast player.

The Japanese company said in October it would prioritize building additional capacity at the Gigafactory over China. A Tesla spokesperson said, "we will, of course, continue to make new investments in Gigafactory 1 , as needed".

iTunes - the media management software that everyone loves to hate - may finally be approaching death's door.

Previously it was reported by 9to5Mac that Apple is preparing to divide iTunes up into separate Podcasts apps, Music and TV in the upcoming version of macOS. It's the same platform Apple used to make the News app on Mac.

Rambo confirmed that Apple would be making some changes in macOS to split some of the functionality of iTunes into distinct apps. However, the sources say it will feature a sidebar that is similar to the News app on the Mac, along with a skinnier title bar and various tabs for Library, Book Store, and the Audiobook Store. Everything looks much more modern and easy to read, and while there is still the option of listening in iTunes we also now have the option to listen via the web, too. Have you tried them on your Mac?
