Is Apple Killing iTunes?

Apple is reportedly planning on KILLING iTunes, which has been around for 18 years now.  The announcement could come as early as TODAY at the company’s annual World Wide Developer Conference.

Of course, this does NOT mean that Apple is going to stop selling digital content, and delete everything you already purchased.

They’re just breaking up iTunes into SEPARATE apps for music, podcasts, TV, movies, books, and so on.  There will probably be a big redesign, but other than that, it’ll be the same stuff, just with a new presentation.

There’s nothing official on any of this but it could be a GOOD thing.  A lot of people have been urging Apple to do this for a while, because over the years they’ve packed EVERYTHING into iTunes, and it’s just become a bloated mess.

Especially when you have to download software updates for 18 years-worth of patched-up code, which includes side-services that you don’t even use.

And some of that change seems to be underway already, with the Apple Music app that was released a few years ago, and the new TV app.  So in a way, iTunes died a long time ago, and Apple is just now getting rid of the body.
