APPLE IS SHUTTING DOWN ITUNES AFTER 18YEARS
It’s been over 18 years since iTunes was introduced at the 2001 Macworld Expo, offering a solution to an industry struggling with piracy. Since then, it has grown into a media behemoth, becoming a one-stop shop for users to consume media that includes music, movies, and TV.
But Apple is planning to divide these different types of media by replacing iTunes with three new apps: Music, TV, and Podcasts. The company has already decentralized media on both iPads and iPhones, which offer the trio of apps. Now, it’s a matter of migrating Macs and Macbooks.
