After almost 20 years, the time has finally come to say goodbye to Apple's iTunes software.
On Monday, October 7th Apple released the newest version of its MacOS operating software. The update, named Catalina, effectively ended iTunes as we know it.
Back in June, the company announced that it would shut down the software and replace it with three new apps for Mac users: Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Podcasts.
Although many people championed iTunes when it first launched in 2001, it became more complicated to use once Apple started to add video and podcasts to its offerings. This new change addresses these concerns and provides users with a simple way to access the content they enjoy.
Thankfully, Apple has made moving content over to the appropriate app a seamless process for Mac users.
As the music streaming movement gained momentum over the past few years, people have started to use iTunes less and less. So, the switch from iTunes to Apple Music makes perfect sense. All of the songs and playlists that were purchased or uploaded to iTunes will migrate to Apple Music automatically. Additionally, the iTunes Store will still be available for those who want to purchase songs or albums on their own.
Apple will launch their very own video streaming service later this year as well. Couple that with the overwhelming popularity of podcasts today, and that would have made for a very complicated situation under the iTunes umbrella. So, releasing separate apps to house these media formats is a great move on Apple's part. All videos and movies will go to Apple TV, podcasts to Apple Podcasts, and audiobooks to Apple Books.
And what about those who use iTunes on Windows? For better or for worse, there will be no changes for PC users. Even though they will still deal with the clunkiness of iTunes, they also won't need to worry about learning to navigate three new apps for their media.
