Apple is reportedly planning to kill iTunes this year

A new report by Bloomberg has confirmed and provided new information regarding earlier speculation that Apple will be deprecating the well-known iTunes app that has been at the forefront of the company's multimedia and entertainment offerings for almost two decades now.

As reported earlier, Apple will indeed break up the various features currently offered by iTunes into three separate apps - Music, TV and Podcasts - à la iOS. Interestingly, and contrary to the earlier report, iTunes may be retired from macOS entirely. The previous report suggested that the app may still have some use for syncing Apple devices, but the new report claims these duties will apparently also be transported to the Music app, making the iTunes app entirely obsolete for macOS users.

Of course, a similar change is unlikely to happen on Windows and so the app may still stick around on Microsoft's OS, at least. We'll get more details about the change when the Cupertino giant announces its next big update to macOS at WWDC 2019, slated for June 3. We're likely also going to see reveals for iOS 13, watchOS 6 and tvOS 13 at the event.
