Apple are breaking iTunes up into 3 different platforms for a streamlined service at last.
Apple are doing something they probably should have done a long time ago, they’re sorting out iTunes. Apple are splitting up music, TV, and podcasts into 3 separate places so you each has a platform of it’s own dedicated to that type of content.
According to 9to5Mac, the next version of MacOS will have indiviual, TV, music, and podcast apps. The plans have been verified by two well-known Apple developers, Guilherme Rambo and Steve Troughton-Smith.
It will be great to see the platform that led the digital download business of music online for so long streamline itself into a fully fledged music service without the surrounding fuss.
However, iTunes isn’t going to be banished to the far depths of hell – unfortunately. Older iOS devices like iPods will still need iTunes to sync music to the devices. Apple will unveil the next MacOS at their Worldwide Developer Conference in June.
