Apple has officially taken iTunes apart to make way for three new apps: podcasts, TV and music.
With the launch of macOS Catalina, Mac devices come with separate apps for consuming podcasts, streaming music and playing videos.
Apple & # 39; replaces & # 39; iTunes basically through the three separate apps, the company said.
The new apps have & # 39; all the features you can expect from iTunes, while they are lightning fast & # 39 ;.
The Music, Podcasts and TV apps have a streamlined design, with fewer tabs and a cleaner user interface.
With the Music app, users have access to more than 50 million songs, playlists and music videos.

& # 39; And users have access to their entire music library, whether they have downloaded, purchased or ripped the songs from a CD & # 39 ;, Apple said.
& # 39; For those who want to own their music, the iTunes Music Store is just a click away. & # 39;
The Apple TV app for Mac includes many of the same features that users would expect, such as TV channels, personalized recommendations, and more than 100,000 iTunes movies and shows.
Macs also have access to the Podcasts app, with more than 700,000 shows to choose from, composite content and more.
Because the new trio of apps replaces iTunes, many have thought about the legacy of media software at Apple.

iTunes was launched in 2001 as an all-in-one media player for uploading music and video. In the following years it became the primary platform of many users who listened to music and, after the launch of the iTunes Music Store, bought music.
It predated the launch of the iPod, which would revolutionize the way people listen to music on the move.
iTunes is also widely regarded as one of the main drivers behind Apple's increasing focus on services, with the company launching support for audio books shortly thereafter and subsequently supporting TV shows, podcasts, and movies.
Despite the lasting impression of iTunes on Apple, it had largely become irrelevant when users switched to iOS apps such as Apple Music, Apple TV and others.
