End Of An Era: Apple Expected To Shut Down iTunes

June 3, 2019

We're officially moving into the future!

According to Forbes, countless other outlets, and a lot of evidence on the Internet, Apple is expected to shut down iTunes! It looks like the company is reinventing the experience by focusing on fragemented apps in lieu of a centralized location for all types of audio content. 

The company is already offering specific apps for Music, Podcasts, Books, and more. New consumer habits -- especially with streaming -- are impacting how people consume music. Even though no one probably uses iTunes anymore anyways it's sad to hear that the platform that once revolutionized music is now obsolete.

Although this has yet to be formally announced there is a lot of evidence online about it. For example, itunes.apple.com now redirects to music.apple.com and, as Business Insider notes, all the iTunes social pages have been scrubed. Side note: who actually followed iTunes on any social media???

Are you sad about the change, or more excited for future products?! Apple probably has a master plan this is a piece of so it's exciting to think of what is coming next....
