Apple Shutting Down The Itunes App

Nearly two decades after first launching iTunes, Apple is reportedly going to retire the product with the announcement expected to be made at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose on Monday.

The company is reportedly launching three standalone apps for Mac users instead: Music, TV, and Podcasts will each individually replace iTunes. Effectively desktops & laptops will now have the separate apps that iPhones, iPads and iPods already have instead of iTunes.

Users can expect the new Music app to offer the same functions that iTunes did, including syncing phones and buying songs. It’s expected existing purchased iTunes Store content like music, movies, TV season passes, etc. will transfer over to the new apps.

Further details will be available come Monday.
