iTunes is dead. Apple announced today at its WWDC 2019 keynote that it is breaking iTunes into three separate macOS apps: Podcasts, Music, and TV. The change will be implemented with the release of macOS 10.15. The new change definitely makes sense for macOS since it has been implemented on iOS for years. Let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.

iTunes is Dead: Replaces It With Three Dedicated Music, TV and Podcast app

The three new apps feature colorful sidebars and easy to use clear menus compared to iTunes. Apple Music is focused on Music alone offering personalized recommendations. Podcasts work in a similar manner which provides a dedicated listening experience. The TV app will house the company's exclusive video content along with other providers including HBO, ShowTime and more. It also supports video in 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos audio.
