iTunes splits as Apple Music, Apple TV and Apple Podcasts

Apple is saying goodbye to iTunes after 18 years. Initially released on 2001, Apple has finally decided to kill its media-player and split it into 3 different apps: Apple Music, Apple TV and Apple Podcasts.

iTunes will be phased out with the introduction of the new version of MacOS, Catalina, with the above trio of apps taking over all of its existing functionality.

The future of iTunes is not one app, but three,” Craig Federighi, VP software engineering at Apple, told the crowd at the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference as he showed off the software suite.

iTunes was a game changer when it launched in the early 2000s. It provided a legal way for consumers to, first, make digital copies of their physical CDs and, a few years later, to buy digital versions of songs and albums. Former CEO Steve Jobs famously convinced all of the major record labels to offer their music in their online market, iTunes. And with time iTunes added movies and TV shows that could be purchased or rented, as well as podcasts, apps and e-books. But now they split again.

So how do you sync your devices?

The Finder. When you plug in your iPhone to your Mac, nothing happens on your screen. Instead, you can open Finder where you’ll find your device and all the syncing options
