Apple set to announce the end of iTunes

The program will be discontinued after 18 years...

iTunes, the streaming and download program launched by Apple in 2001, will soon no longer be available on the Mac operating systems.

Following in the footsteps of Apple’s handheld devices, Bloomberg reports that iTunes will be superseded by three separate apps: Music, TV and Podcasts.

Apple CEO Tim Cook is expected to announce the changes at this week’s Apple Inc. developer conference in San Jose, California.

Apple Music launched their Preferred Distribution Programme in November, offering clients of selected new partners exclusive features via the service.

In 2018, streaming accounted for 75% of music industry revenue.
