Speculations have been rife in the tech world since Apple, a flagship mobile phones company stopped posting anything on iTunes’s social media pages. iTunes is an internet broadcaster, media player and mobile device management app developed by Apple. Since 2001 iPhone users have been using iTunes for all media related functions like playing music, listening to podcasts, watching TV etc.
At the Apples’ Worldwide Developer Conference WWDC starting tomorrow in Califonia, Apple Inc is expected to unveil 3 new apps that will replace iTunes. Bloomberg had this to say:
iTunes has been the way Apple users listen to music, watch movies and TV shows, hear podcasts, and manage their devices for almost two decades. This year, Apple is finally ready to move into a new era. The company is launching a trio of new apps for the Mac – Music, TV, and Podcasts – to replace iTunes. That matches Apple’s media app strategy on iPhones and iPads. Without iTunes, customers can manage their Apple gadgets through the Music app.
Anyway, The WWDC kicks off tomorrow, by the 7th of June we will know for sure if they have indeed replaced iTunes with 3 other apps.
