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.
