Apple announces separate apps for Podcast, Music and TV. Kills iTunes
Reports that Apple is finally killing off its popular iTunes app is true as the company has announced a new set of apps to replace iTunes. This announcement was made at its WWDC 2019 keynote. The three dedicated will be available only on its new macOS 10.15 (Catalina) and later. After 18 years of iTunes, the company is remodelling its services to appeal more to its users. This new strategy makes more sense as it will streamline different services and make them available on separate apps instead of clustering all services on one huge app.
The iTunes has a much more jampacked and ugly interface but the new Apple music, Podcast and TV apps feature a much more appealing interface with a lovely sidebar. Apple music will be dedicated to those who want to stream music, the app will also make recommendations to its users.
The Apple TV app will enhance the TV viewing experience by supporting 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos. Apple’s new podcast app will also enhance the podcast listening experience in its own way as well. Back in 2000 when Apple first launched iTunes, it was a big deal among users. Fans were excited about a new platform where they can stream music, watch videos and listen to podcasts all at once. Today things have changed drastically and the company is adapting to that change as well. The result is what we see today, separate apps for different services.
