After many years of announcements, it finally happened - Apple decided to "kill" the iTunes application. This music service has been active since 2001 and was initially considered revolutionary, but has lost its popularity in recent years and has begun to lose users.
In fact, Apple has decided to divide iTunes into several different applications. Hence, instead of iTunes, Apple users will have access to Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV.
Apple's iTunes speculation has been in existence a few years ago, but Apple did not confirm it until WWDC event in San Jose yesterday, which, in addition to this news, announced several more news about the future operations of the company.
All users who want to log on to the new services will have to do so through a new entry in which the email and user data will be hidden and protected. For the Windows operating system, the iTunes application will remain unchanged.
"Privacy is a fundamental human right, and we intend to respect it," said the head of the software department at Apple, Craig Federighi.
In addition to the new applications, Apple announced that soon the new iOS 13 operating system will arrive, which will have different and improved features, as well as changes in the interface. One is Dark Mode, which is very different from that of Android and is optimized for the entire operating system. All iOS applications will have a dark background, at the option of the user.
The new Apple Watch and Mac Pro were announced at WWDC, which received much criticism of the lack of novelties and improvements. Although Mac Pro has quite powerful specifications, the starting price of as much as $ 5,999 makes it too expensive for the casual user on the market, but costs do not stop there. The price of 5,999 dollars refers only to the housing, and in the price, the display and the bottom pad are not calculated.
