Back in the day, we were all about CDs, cassette tapes, and vinyl records. Then there was the arrival of Napster, then listening to music on Windows was common ways for listeners to get their music. Thanks to iTunes though, it paved the way to the popularity of paid digital downloads.
Last Monday Apple announced that it’s letting iTunes go and splitting the service into separate entities for music, podcast, and their TV apps. They say that the new apps will organize your media just like the same apps on iOS, which means the music you purchased or imported into your iTunes library will still be there. So yes – files and playlists will just be moved to the new Apple Music app.
iTunes isn’t really dead it just won’t exist as an app. The iTunes store will be available still, so your gift cards and credits are still good to use too, Apple said.
You should see the change happen around Fall of this year! Will you miss the old iTunes?
