Apple to Split iTunes Into Separate Apps

Apple to Split iTunes Into Separate Apps

Music, TV, Podcasts, and "perhaps" Books apps will be in the mix, and the Apple services machine will be kicked into full gear before school is out. The updates enables episode to open with.apple.com URL alternative to itunes.apple.com.

The move is interesting because Apple is increasingly focusing on services with its Apple Music and Apple TV Plus subscription offerings, so separate apps for these services make sense. Besides that, the iTunes branding doesn't align with Apple Podcasts on iOS, which is probably how most users listen on their iPhones or iPads. That's likely to start to change when the Mac receives its own Podcasts app later this year, and Apple has also now revamped its podcast web interface. The company already allows users to access their Apple Music and Apple TV content through iTunes, but it will now introduce dedicated apps for both the services. Apple is reportedly set to break up the software into separate Music, TV, and Podcasts apps in the next version of macOS, according to both Guilherme Rambo at 9to5Mac and Steve Troughton-Smith.

The report also claims that Apple will redesign the existing Books app on Mac to look more like the Apple News app. The new apps will be Marzipan applications, like the new Apple News app on the Mac, and it will have the same codebase and look like their counterparts on iOS devices. There are also the rumors which suggest that Apple Books app is also going to split from Apple News. As always, if you have any thoughts, feel free to sound them off in the comments section below!
