iTunes has been around for the longest time ever and has been Apple’s one-stop shop for the majority of its products and services. For example, it can be used to purchase music, books, movies, TV shows, apps, cloud storage, and it is also used to help sync up iOS devices. As such, the software has become extremely bloated.
This is why it didn’t come as a surprise to learn that in a report from last month that Apple might want to break iTunes up into more manageable apps. Now in a report from Guilherme Rambo of 9to5Mac, he has managed to get his hands on what appears to screenshots that shows the upcoming standalone Music and TV apps for macOS.
Both apps are similar in terms of design but use different color schemes. They are both rather bare bones at the moment but we imagine that we should have a better idea of how they will work next month during WWDC. Apple will most likely be announcing updates to iOS and macOS, and presumably, these new standalone apps will be part of Apple’s announcement.
If you’re not a fan of the current iteration of iTunes and believe that it could stand to be improved upon, then perhaps these changes are worth looking forward to. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info, but check back with us next week for all the official details.
