Apple reportedly planning to break up iTunes into standalone apps

The folks over at 9to5Mac have also managed to unearth the app icons for the standalone TV and Podcasts app which will be a part of macOS 10.15. He claims the podcast and music apps will be made using Apple's Marzipan technology, which allows for the easy translation of apps from the mobile iPad environment to the macOS environment.

Steve Troughton-Smith, who has accurately predicted previously unannounced Apple hardware and software releases, tweeted that the company is planning to break up iTunes into a handful of content-specific apps.

Bosa is a pass rushing phenom, his speed to get around the end with bend and balance is among the best I have ever witnessed. The Steelers have constructed their organization on the philosophy of building through the NFL Draft.

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.

"The new Books app will have a sidebar similar to the News app on the Mac, it will also feature a narrower title bar with different tabs for the Library, Book Store, and Audiobook Store", the report reads. This would essentially mean the long-awaited breaking-up of the iTunes app, and perhaps the first step toward ending file-based media at Apple altogether - far, far down the road, obviously. While these apps look good, they have some usability issues. These alterations would likely come in macOS 10.15. That's because without iTunes, iPhone/iPad owners won't be able to sync their devices to their Mac. 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. The Music app will undoubtedly be the new hub for the Apple Music service. Or do you think they still need a lot of work?
