Apple's WWDC 19 special event moved on to address one of the biggest rumors of the weekend. For days, it had been rumored that the company would kill iTunes as everyone knew it. And sure enough, iTunes is undergoing a substantial change for all Mac users and is pretty much going away forever.
Apple's iTunes experience is now being split across three different programs: Music, Podcasts, and TV. These three separate apps will have their own distinct functions and their own unique features, as well as their own sidebars and menu interfaces.
The Apple Music and Podcast apps are fairly straightforward. They'll each contain personalized recommendations, as well as enhanced search features to help users find content that's suited to them. Meanwhile, TV is getting some major enhancements. Mac users will notice that they can use the TV app to access their Apple TV content and any of their third-party apps that they'd normally find in tvOS. On top of that that, 4K HDR, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos audio will all be supported.
Those looking to sync their iPhones or iPads via their Macs will now see a different interface. Rather than sync their devices through the iTunes program, the sync function will be docked to the side of the Finder.
The death of iTunes is coming in macOS 10.15. This update is coming soon.
