Apple to Get Rid of iTunes by Fall 2019
Apple releases its new operating system this fall.
Apple is getting rid of iTunes.
According to MSN, the company is gearing up to release its new operating system this fall, and will split into three separate media streaming apps: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple TV.
The news has been met with concerns over whether iTunes users will lose their music libraries along with the change, but Apple released a statement saying otherwise.
“Users will have access to their entire music library, whether they downloaded the songs, purchased them or ripped them from a CD,” Apple said in a press release.
Apple also called the new Music app for Mac— which will have over 50 million songs, playlists, and music videos— is “lightning fast, fun and easy to use.”
The new MacOS, Catalina, will be available this fall as a free software update.
