Apple announces the end of iTunes
The end of iTunes is coming, as well as other important changes within the giant tech company Apple. Apple CEO Tim Cook is attending the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, alongside other company leaders. During their keynote presentation, they are expected to reveal the last updates, as well as develop in the ones that have already been disclosed.
One of the major changes comes with the decision of Apple to divide its media catalogue. iTunes will be separated into several independent apps — Music, TV, Podcasts, and maybe Books. For music lovers, the biggest change comes the new Music app, and how it will be combined with Apple Music. The company is expecting to implement the changes in the next macOS update, but iTunes will probably be kept running until every device can be synced and it has been proved that everything runs as effectively as expected.
The iPad aims to be re-positioned as a version of a laptop, with more third-party compatibility and software improvements. The idea is to increase the number of apps that can be used as one, as well as better screen, to increase the user quality experience and make it closer to a laptop one. Apple Watch is becoming an independent device, with its own apps, a voice recorder, calculator and new messaging options. The new iPod touch is already here, for the pleasure of music listeners and gamers that want to enjoy these services, but not necessarily use their phones.
There’s no doubt that we will have a lot of tech topics to talk about after WWDC this week, with its focus on health and augmented reality, the future looks bright!
