Apple Announces Shutdown of its Digital Media Software iTunes

It's Official: iTunes Be Dead

The new Music app will be based off of iTunes, so it will still contain some of those familiar features.

When Apple releases the next version of its desktop operating system (macOS Catalina, version 10.15) in September, iTunes will be replaced by three smaller and speedier apps: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple TV.

A consensus of industry insiders believe it is a smart move for Apple to shut down iTunes.

Pokemon Sword Shield release date leaked: Giant Pokemon, Raids, Legendary info revealed
The games, which will also be released as part of a double pack, will be taking place in a new setting known as the Galar Region. According to the reveal details, it sounds like certain Pokemon will only be able to be captured during these Max Raid Battles.

Movies and TV shows that you purchased or rented from iTunes will be in the new Apple TV app. This change will increase continuity with iOS, where they are also separate apps.

But iTunes has become growingly outdated amid the rise of streaming services such as Spotify, Netflix and Apple Music itself, as well as Apple TV+ - which will launch along with Catalina later this year.

However, the news has sparked concern among Apple users, with some anxious they will need to manually transfer their library to the new Music app.

"Users will have access to their entire music library, whether they downloaded the songs, purchased them or ripped them from a CD", reads a press release. What good is the iTunes Store if your music needs are catered through an (optional) Apple Music subscription, you may ask? Instead, those files will just be migrated into the new Apple Music app.

This is also joined by added Siri control, with the voice assistant now able to handle third-party music (like Pandora and Waze) and navigation apps, and, significantly, "Hey Siri" support will soon take advantage of a car's built-in microphone. Users will be able to update their watch software on the device directly, rather than through the iPhone. Find My iPhone and Find My Friends will be consolidated into one app, called Find My. "Now that devices appear in Finder, it's also easier to drag and drop files you want to transfer all in one place".

The iTunes Store doesn't seem to be going anywhere either, and will still sell music on iOS, Mac, PC and Apple TV devices.

Google outage affects YouTube, Google Cloud and G Suite
Google has been working to fix the issue (the bare minimum expected) after first acknowledging the problem about three hours ago. The issue appears to be regional, however, with anecdotal reports indicating not everyone is affected.

Apple says users of iTunes under Microsoft Windows will not see any changes.
