Apple will break up iTunes into multiple apps in next macOS release

Apple Reportedly Bringing Apple Music, Apple TV Apps to the Mac

The update is expected to arrive with the next major release of macOS, which is reported to be on track for a June launch.

Evidence uncovered by two veteran programmers indicates that Apple may debut new dedicated apps for music, podcasts and TV shows in a forthcoming version of MacOS.

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith says he is "fairly confident" that Apple is going in this direction by way of Marzipan, one of Apple's more recent technologies for porting iPad apps over to Mac systems with minimal fuss. But with the emergence of Apple Music, that is shifting, and the new Apple TV services will only help push people away from the comfort zone of iTunes.

Apple already announced it was working on a standalone Apple TV app for Mac, and Rambo has suggested there will be standalone apps for Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple Books coming as well.

Apple will introduce the new apps with macOS 10.15, and it will be using its Marzipan tech that it used to bring some iOS apps to the Mac in the past. To be honest, this shouldn't come to anyone as a surprise since iTunes has been a huge part of Apple and the company is still not ready to completely retire it.

The latter upgrade will reportedly draw some inspiration from Apple News, which has also been available on macOS for a while now.

As mentioned earlier, by and far the most notable change is the fact that users can now stream a podcast directly from the web browser - the site won't force users to open a podcast in iTunes anymore. As always, if you have any thoughts, feel free to sound them off in the comments section below! Or do you think they still need a lot of work?
