iTunes certainly brought a revolution in the music industry. Now, after 18 years since its launch, iTunes could come to an end.
Apparently, Apple wants to change things around and is working on independent TV, Music, and Podcasts apps using its new app framework, Marzipan. This change would allow iOS-designed apps to be perfectly ported on Macs and therefore, save developers significant time and energy in optimization work.
It seems like the addition of new Music, Podcasts and TV apps was confirmed by close sources to the development process of the upcoming macOS 10.15.
When it comes to the design, the leaked Podcasts and Apple TV icons match the iOS ones, but are more rounded.
Dividing iTunes into a few apps would allow the company to offer a more universal experience on all devices and clear the clutter in one step.
According to the same source, iTunes can still be found on the next mac firmware update in order to syncronize with older Apple devices.
